APD is hosting a series of career fairs this month at its Public Safety Headquarters in downtown Atlanta. 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.
Interviews and testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. 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.
A full-service police agency, APD has adopted a community-oriented policing philosophy and relies heavily upon community input and collaborative problem-solving strategies. It is through heightened community involvement in public safety matters that APD will most effectively address its many priorities, including, but not limited to youth-related crime, domestic violence and the fight against crime in Atlanta.
With an authorized strength of more than 2,000 sworn officers, the Atlanta Police Department is the largest law enforcement agency in the State of Georgia, and a dedicated, high-profile force for positive change in Atlanta.
