Police Department

The purpose of the Clayton County Police Department is to enforce the law fairly and firmly; to prevent crime; to pursue and bring to justice those who break the law; to keep the peace; to protect, help and serve the people of Clayton County; and to do all of this with integrity, common sense and sound judgment.

We must support and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and the Constitution of the State of Georgia. We must discharge our duties consistent with our Oath of Office and the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.

We must be compassionate, courteous and patient, acting without fear or favor or prejudice to the rights of others. We must be professional, calm and restrained in the face of violence and use only that force which is reasonable and necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.

We must strive to reduce the fears of the public and, so far as we can, to reflect their priorities in the actions we take. We must respond to well-founded criticism with a willingness to change.
