The Douglasville Police Department believes in the "We are One" philosophy of community policing. Being "one" with our community means reaching out to our citizens and being involved in the life of our community. We sponsor, or participate in many community outreach programs as part of that involvement.
Chief Sparks created the DCOP Program out of the Mission and Core Values of the Police Department. The department's everyday principles are reflected in the daily operations of Law Enforcement, and citizen interaction.
The Douglasville PD unites with several community programs to provide back packs for the youth of our area.
Over 500 Back Packs were donated and distributed at this event at Jessie Davis Park for the 2016 school year.
The Douglasville Police Department recently opened a community outreach location in Douglasville at 8304 Hollis Street. This house will be used as a meeting point for members of the community and law enforcement. Although this idea is still new, the plan is to increase the number of meetings and opportunities offered from this location in the heart of our community.
Whether you need to file a police report, get information on social services, or want to meet with an officer to voice your concerns, the Douglasville Community Outreach Program site can help. We are currently building relationships with new community partners to offer even more to our citizens from this location. We are excited for this new opportunity to serve!
The Douglasville Police Department hosts Town Hall meetings quarterly on various topics, such as active shooter situations, crime tips and holiday safety, current crime trends, and other topics of relevance in our community. Follow us on Facebook for upcoming meetings.
By request the Douglasville Police Training Department will present their "Active Shooter" program to any organization interested in knowing how to react in an active shooter situation.
