Message From Chief Rusty Grant
On behalf of the hard working men and women of the Roswell Police Department, I welcome you to our website. We hope you will find it useful and informative. It is intended to serve as not only an additional contact point with the citizens we serve, but also a valuable source of information on a variety of topics including crime prevention and various services that we offer. We are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our residents and hope that you take a few minutes to browse through what we have to offer.
About the Roswell Police Department
The Roswell Police Department serves and protects citizens and visitors within the city. Roswell is located 20 miles north of Atlanta. The 200 employee department serves a population of almost 100,000 and 41.95 square miles of property.
Meeting the challenges of a growing city, the Roswell Police Department touts a crime rate of only 2 persons crimes and 25 property crimes per 1,000 persons. Roswell residents and businesses are active in our community and support police efforts to maintain a safe environment.
The citizens can expect a professional, internationally accredited police department. The Roswell Police Department strives to set a standard of excellence for others to follow.
The Roswell Police Department vows to protect life and property, preserve the peace, and strives to prevent crime, fear, and disorder in the City of Roswell in partnership with all of those who live, work, and travel through our city.
The Roswell Police Department is one of the less than 400 law enforcement agencies that has received national accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
Our personnel are committed to the CALEA ideal of excellence. Excellence means going far beyond the line of duty, doing more than others expect. This is what excellence is all about. It comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, looking for the smallest detail, and going the extra mile. Excellence means caring and making a special effort to do more.
Community Oriented Policing
In order to achieve excellence, we are dedicated to the concept of Community Oriented Policing (COP). COP is predicated on seeking input from the community on law enforcement and quality of life issues. I hope our citizens will test our commitment by using this site to report non-emergency neighborhood problems, complaints, and suggestions.
We read all emails and direct them to the appropriate unit of the Police Department for action.
According to American Traffic Solutions, which installs safety cameras, 100 children die annually and 25,000 are injured on their way to and from school. Children are a valuable part of our community, and we want to keep our kids safe! Starting on Monday, February 8th, we are pleased to announce that Roswell is the first community in Fulton County to have the stop arm camera program in place. Initially, only a select number of buses will be equipped with the cameras. The selection was determined based on the bus drivers’ complaints reported to the Fulton County School’s Transportation Department. When the stop arm is deployed, the video will start and capture cars that pass the bus. Our goal is to ensure the safety of our children by changing driver behavior.
