On Saturday, the Atlanta Police Department (APD) will hold a career fair at its Public Safety Headquarters in downtown Atlanta.
While the economy has been difficult for most employers, the APD is looking for dedicated, community-minded individuals to join our ranks of sworn officers, and become part of our force for positive change in Atlanta.
Since 2010, the department has hired more than 500 new officers in our quest to reach a sworn force of 2,000.
Interviews and testing will begin promptly at 8 a.m., 226 Peachtree Street, 2nd Floor. Please arrive dressed in business attire with a valid photo government-issued identification card. Anyone arriving after 8 a.m. will not be admitted. Please be prepared to be in attendance for at least six hours. Plan accordingly and come early. For additional information please see here.
A full-service police agency, the APD has adopted a community-oriented philosophy and relies heavily upon community input and collaborative problem-solving strategies. It is through heightened community involvement in public safety matters that the APD will most effectively address its many priorities, including, but not limited to youth-related crime, domestic violence and the perception of crime in Atlanta.
With an authorized strength of more than 1,959 sworn officers, the APD is the largest law enforcement agency in the State of Georgia, and a dedicated, high-profile force for positive change in our communities.
