Do you know someone who would be a great Dunwoody Police Officer - applications are now being accepted from a wider pool of applicants.
The men and women of the Dunwoody Police Department are committed to providing excellent service to the citizens of Dunwoody. As an outward symbol of that commitment for 2016, Chief Grogan asked members of the department to provide #oneword that symbolized their individual commitment to our mission and to the people of Dunwoody.

Since the Dunwoody Police Department started soon after incorporation, I can assure you that our hiring standards were very rigorous and we only accepted experianced applicants who were police officers in other jurisdictions who passed extensive background checks and had a spotless record.

With the compitition escalating for quality police officers between various jurisdictions and the Department not being able to maintain a level of being fully staffed, it appears by looking at the most recent job announcement that the Department has stepped away from the requirement of needing to be P.O.S.T. certified (namely from another agency).  I welcome this change as it opens oppertunities for quality individuals coming out of the military, professionals looking for a carreer change and it probabbly offers a wider diversity as well as more home grown officers who have deep ties to the community.

If you know a candidate who might make a fine Dunwoody Police Officer, please pass on this announcement.  Thanks,  John
