Clayton County Police Department News

Today we celebrated the renovation of the E911 Communications Center! The renovation of the Communications Center was the final phase of the implementation of the $23 million dollar Public Safety Digital Network project that was made possible through SPLOST funds. This new equipment will not only enhance the work environment for our dispatchers, but it will help public safety as a whole (Police, Fire, Sheriff) provide services in a more efficient manner.

We want you to have FUN, but we want you to be SAFE as well!

Safety is KEY!!! Here are some tips to help you and your family enjoy Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! If you are looking for a safe place to take the kiddos tonight, you should consider coming to see us! We will be at all three of these events!!

Each year the phenomenal residents of the Lake Ridge Community in Riverdale host a Public Safety Appreciation luncheon. This year, they decided to host the luncheon at police headquarters. The only thing that changed was the location...the people are phenomenal, the music was great and the food was fantastic!! Even though they were showing us how much they appreciate us, we appreciate them more.

We recently purchased new bike racks…well today, those racks served bonus purpose. Sgt. King and a few of his officers were doing some proactive work near Mount Zion Pkwy and discovered two teen suspects prowling in the back yard of home. It appeared that they were looking for a place to burglarize. When officers attempted to make contact with them, they took off on bikes. A short time later, the teens were detained and subsequently arrested after officers confirmed that one of the bikes had been stolen from a nearby neighborhood. The bikes were loaded onto the bike racks and we were able to return one of the bikes back to its owner. The teens were charged with loitering and prowling, theft by receiving stolen property and criminal trespass.

Kelsey Quayle Murder Case UPDATE: We have obtained multiple surveillance videos from the area where Kelsey Quayle was shot and are attempting to identify a male seen in video obtained from a source. We have confirmed that the male was the driver of a 2011-2014 Chrysler 200 that is possibly gray in color. We are considering the male in the video to be a "PERSON OF INTEREST". The male that we are attempting to identify can be seen approaching the door of the bus and knocking, but not being allowed to enter. We do know that the male was involved in an altercation outside of his vehicle in the area where Quayle was shot. At this time, he is only being considered a "PERSON OF INTEREST". Anyone who may have information pertaining to the identity of the male in the video is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8744). CCPD Case#18052207

The Clayton County Police Department is thrilled to be on the route of the Teddy Bear Run which is sponsored by the Southside Riders. They collect new teddy bears donated by the community then they take the donated bears / stuffed animals and a small toy and seal them in a bag to help protect them. The group then distributes them to the local law enforcement. We are truly thankful for this great group of folks!!

Here is video footage captured from various angles just seconds before the crash involving Kelsey Quayle occurred. We are asking anyone who may have been traveling along Upper Riverdale Road, in the area of the crash (approx. 7:02 a.m.) to contact us at 770-477-3648. Detectives would like to speak with you about what you may have seen in the area. We would especially like to speak with the driver of the white SUV and the driver of the gray sedan that is seen passing Kelsey's vehicle as it is traveling in the lanes of oncoming traffic. On October 8, 2018, Kelsey Quayle was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident on Upper Riverdale Road. She was transported from the accident location to Southern Regional Medical Center in critical condition. She was later transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for further treatment. As doctors at Grady Memorial Hospital worked throughout the night in an attempt to treat Quayle’s injuries, they discovered that she had sustained a gunshot to her neck. Quayle died from her injuries on October 10, 2018.
