On behalf of the men and women of the Snellville Police Department, welcome to our website and thank you for taking the time to visit. It has been an honor to serve the residents and visitors of Snellville since 2002 as a member of the Snellville Police Department, and in the capacity as the chief of police since July 1, 2021. 

The members of the Snellville Police Department serve a growing population of over 20,000 residents along with 200,000 motorists that pass through the city daily. Our police department is comprised of 48 full-time sworn officers, 14 full-time civilian employees, 12 part-time/reserve sworn officers, and one part-time civilian employee. We provide full service public safety for our community.

Our department’s mission is to protect and serve by using effective and proven standards of excellence, with a positive and progressive attitude in every aspect of public service. To preserve the peace and strive to prevent crime disorder while maintaining active cooperation with the community and respect for human dignity. We will accomplish this by providing proactive, fair, and impartial law enforcement service, and making every effort to improve the lives of those we commit to serve.

Our department continues to build partnerships within the community. We have a policing philosophy of providing excellence in service and problem-solving initiatives. SPD works diligently to protect our community from those that may have a desire to victimize our community members. We encourage all that are connected to the city to attend our Citizen’s Police Academy that is held two times a year. This is free to attend and provides outstanding information regarding the operations of our police department. We would also love for you to visit us when we host Snellville Public Safety Night and participate at Snellville Days.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any member of our police department if you feel that we may be of assistance.  Don’t forget to like/follow us on all our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Stay safe Snellville!
