The Atlanta Police Department

With an authorized strength of over 2000 sworn officers, the Atlanta Police Department is the largest law enforcement agency in the State of Georgia. 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 three major priorities of (1) youth-related crime, (2) domestic violence, and (3) the perception of crime in Atlanta.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Atlanta Police Department is to create a safer Atlanta by reducing crime, ensuring the safety of our citizens and building trust in partnership with our community.

Vision Statement

We are a source of pride for the citizens of Atlanta, admired among law enforcement agencies world-wide, recognized for our professionalism, integrity, and service to our communities.

Core Values

Professionalism – Taking pride in our actions, duties, development, and appearance
Integrity – Adhering to moral and ethical principles at all times
Commitment – Striving for excellence, accountability, and effectiveness in our performance
Courage – Instilling trust and standing for justice in the face of danger

Organizational Structure

The delivery of professional police services in Atlanta is coordinated through the three divisions and one bureau of the Atlanta Police Department. Routine services include uniform patrol operations, criminal investigations, technical and administrative support services, and the regulation of vehicles for hire. Emergency police response is available around the clock and is facilitated by strategically located police precincts throughout the City and at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Citizen Advisory Councils and Neighborhood Planning Units representing 139 separate neighborhoods promote citizen input for Departmental decisions while mini-precincts, foot patrols, and bicycle patrols encourage personalized policing and frequent citizen-officer interaction.
