E-911 earns rare national recognition

Cobb 911 was recently awarded its third reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. As a testament to the department's dedication and professionalism, it also was honored with a Department of Excellence Award from CALEA's Board of Commissioners.

"It takes a team to provide public safety to the residents and visitors of Cobb County, and Cobb 911 is an extremely vital part of our public safety team," Sam Heaton, interim Public Safety Director, said. "The reaccreditation status and award is a great example of the work they do every day."

At the award banquet, 104 agencies received accreditation awards, but only three received the Accreditation with Excellence. This award sets the benchmark for public safety professionalism. For more information on the department, visit
