News Release

ATLANTA POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES COMMAND STAFF PERSONNEL CHANGES
Zone 2, Airport, SOS Receive New Commanders

New commanders for North Atlanta’s Zone 2, the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport precinct and the Special Operations Section have been named by Atlanta Police Chief George N. Turner. The appointments are effective today.

Major Lane Hagin, the former commander of the Special Operations Section, will be the new commander of the Airport Section.  Major Robert Browning, former commander of Zone 2, will replace Major Hagin as the new commander of the Special Operations Section.  The Special Operations Section includes Motors, SWAT, Hit and Run, DUI Task Force, Mounted Patrol and other specialty units. Major Van Hobbs, formerly a captain assigned as the assistant commander for Zone 6, was appointed to the rank of Major and will replace Major Browning as the new commander of Zone 2. Capt. Mike Giugliano, formerly a lieutenant with the Fulton County Burglary Task Force, has been promoted to assistant commander of Zone 6, replacing Hobbs.

Major Hagin is a 21-year veteran of the Atlanta Police Department.  He has served the citizens of Atlanta in various assignments during his tenure with the Atlanta Police Department.  Major Browning began his career with the Atlanta Police Department in 1983 and has held several leadership positions within the Atlanta Police Department.   Major Van H. Hobbs Jr. is a 23-year veteran of the Atlanta Police Department and has severed the citizens of Atlanta in various assignments throughout his career.

A full-service police agency, the Department has adopted a community-oriented philosophy and relies heavily upon community input and collaborative problem-solving strategies. It is through heightened community involvement in public safety matters that the Atlanta Police Department will most effectively address its many priorities, including, but not limited to youth-related crime, domestic violence and the perception of crime in Atlanta.

With an authorized strength of more than 1,959 sworn officers, the Atlanta Police Department is the largest law enforcement agency in the State of Georgia, and a dedicated, high-profile force for positive change in our communities.
