The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) will formally present their report on the Cobb County Police Department to the Board of Commissioners next Tuesday, June 13, at the 9 a.m. BOC meeting in the Commissioners Hearing Room at 100 Cherokee St, Marietta. The IACP conducted, and recently released, a Police Operations and Management Study of the department.

The IACP gave the following description of the process:

In the summer of 2016, the Cobb County, Georgia Police Department (CCPD) contracted with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to conduct a study of the Cobb County Police Department. The IACP team conducted a number of onsite visits and initiated a series of interviews with staff and select community members identified by CCPD. Citizens had the opportunity to provide online feedback and staff from the department completed an in-house workforce survey. Additionally, IACP conducted significant analysis of current data and new data generated as a part of this study. This report outlines our findings and recommendations.
