Uniform Patrol Division
The Uniform Patrol Division responds to calls for service throughout Dunwoody. To aid in efficient response, the City of Dunwoody is divided into three patrol zones. The Uniform Patrol Division responds to a variety of calls for service in a typical day. The most common calls for service include auto accidents, false alarms, and reports of criminal activity. The responding officer is responsible for initiating criminal investigations through observation and field interviews, making arrests of criminal suspects, and documenting their actions for further investigation by detectives.  If you are interested in gaining a firsthand experience of the Uniform Patrol Division, consider applying to participate in the Ride-Along Program.

The CRT consists of three officers and one sergeant working as a unit. Through the CRT, the Uniform Patrol Division is able to direct resources to a specific problem without diverting patrol officers from responding to calls for service. The CRT works to deter crime through proactive enforcement and directed enforcement as trends emerge. Contact the CRT through Sergeant Jason Dove at 678- 382-6930 or jason.dove@dunwoodyga.gov.

Each member of the DART has received at least 40 hours of training through the Peace Officer’s Standards and Training for Response to Domestic Violence. A DART member reaches out to each victim of domestic violence to ensure he or she is aware of available resources for assistance.
