The primary purpose (mission) of the Chamblee Police Department is to maintain social order within prescribed ethical and constitutional limits, while providing professional law enforcement services. To attain this, the Chamblee Police Department enforces the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority and the constitutional rights of all persons.
The Chamblee Police Department recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves. Therefore, it actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to facilitate the maximum use of resources.
The Role of the Chamblee Police Department
The Chamblee Police Department vigorously responds to calls for law enforcement services, enforces all state and local laws and ordinances, protects life and property, investigates matters of a criminal nature, preserves the peace, and strives to prevent crime and disorder. We are guided by the ordinances enacted by the City of Chamblee, the laws of the State of Georgia, and the Constitution of the United States of America.
We must strive to set a standard of excellence for others to follow, both individually and collectively. In keeping with this goal, we have adopted the following concise mission statement that reflects the fundamental principles of our agency: "To maintain a safe and secure community with the highest quality of life by providing professional, ethical, and responsible public safety services in partnership with the community." We feel this should be the cornerstone of each and every member of our agency's policing philosophy.
