Fulton County Officials Unveil a “New Beginning” for Police Operations on Old National Highway | Print |

Fulton County Commissioner William “Bill Edwards, District 7,   the Board of Commissioners, Police Chief Cassandra Jones and Interim County Manager Patrick O’Conner will unveil a new full-service police precinct on Monday, December 29, 2014 at 11:00 a.m.  

The precinct will be the first precinct to be available 24 hours a day, seven days week. The Old National Precinct is expected to open by the end of the first quarter in 2015.   It is located in the former Aaron Rents store located at 5539 Old National Highway in College Park, GA.   The 8,034 square-foot facility expands available workspace, and the work area will be retrofitted to meet the needs of police operations.

Commissioner Edwards expressed his delight with the new facility.   “The opening of this facility will represent a ‘new beginning’ and a continuation of our partnership with South Fulton residents and the business community to maintain the economic growth of South Fulton and the safety of our residents.   This central location will always be open to residents who want to obtain our services regardless of the day or hour.   Our goals are excellence in customer service and accessibility,” said Commissioner Edwards.

Fulton County Police Chief Cassandra Jones stated, “The space increase allows us to house patrol operations, special services, administrative office headquarters and code enforcement. Additional available services will include but are not limited to police reports, accident reports, fingerprinting for gun permits and work permits.   Our lease with Aaron Rents in this freestanding building will increase our visibility on Old National Highway and facilitate a stronger working relationship with the community that we serve.”

The Fulton County Police Department works with multiple homeowners associations and business/merchants associations to promote partnerships designed to reduce crime and preserve the quality of life for all citizens in Fulton County. A larger and more visible police precinct is a grassroots approach to law enforcement that involves long-term, proactive partnerships among, police, public and private organizations, business owners and the community at-large.
