Located in the metropolitan Atlanta area and comprised of over 600 sworn officers, our department polices the third largest county in the state of Georgia.

The Cobb County Police Department has its own P.O.S.T. certified expanded mandate school which features a rigorous 6 month curriculum supplemented with practical scenarios, defensive tactics, and firearms training. After successfully completing the academy, recruits will be assigned to a Field Training Officer at one of our five precincts where they will receive additional training in the field lasting approximately 12 weeks. Once this phase has been completed, recruits transition to solo status for an additional 6 weeks of direct observation by the shift sergeant.
