Also in the county’s weekly newsletter there was an announcement about the official opening of the new Cobb County Police Department headquarters:

The Board of Commissioners and Public Safety leadership cut the ribbon for the new Cobb County Police Headquarters on Fairground Street in Marietta last week.

The building, a former credit union, underwent $16 million in renovations paid for through the 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. Cobb County Property Management provided the work to transform it into the new headquarters. The new building enabled the department to consolidate sections such as records, permitting, crimes against person unit, internal affairs unit, technology-based crimes, VIPER and command staff. These sections were previously scattered across different buildings throughout Cobb.

Further improvements are ongoing, including a real-time crime center designed to consolidate information for officers in the field. A crime scene garage is under construction behind the building. Both projects are expected to be completed during 2022.
