Cobb County Police Department News

On April 16, 2018 at approximately 18:20 hours at Cumberland Mall in Atlanta, GA, Supervisor Clark (Cumberland Mall Security) was performing a foot patrol through lower level Sears wing, when he spotted three males and two females who were having a dispute with a mall tenant. They were being disorderly and appeared to be intoxicated. Supervisor Clark then intervened and asked the group to calm down, but when they refused, he asked them to leave mall property. At this point, the suspects continued to be disorderly, so Supervisor Clark immediately notified Cobb County Police Officer Bailey to assist with the incident. Officer Bailey asked the individuals to leave the property as well. One of the female suspects then attempted to spit on Supervisor Clark but he maintained his professionalism and ensured the suspects continued to their vehicle. Officer Bailey then approached the suspect’s vehicle and smelled a strong odor of marijuana. Officer Bailey then ordered the suspects out of the vehicle. During the course of the investigation, Cobb County Police searched the suspect’s vehicle and found two stolen hand guns, marijuana, stolen license plates, stolen credit cards and vehicle break-in tools. All of the suspects were then taken into custody. By being proactive while on patrol and showing outstanding teamwork, Supervisor Clark and Cobb County police officer Bailey combined to prevent the suspects from committing future crimes with the hand guns and criminal tools they had in their possession. Outstanding work!!

On May 8th, Mrs. Catherine Lyerla pulled into the Precinct 3 parking lot with a flat tire. She did not seek police assistance and was planning to wait in the parking lot for AAA. When Precinct 3 officers saw her and checked with her they learned that AAA had a 1 hour response time. Precinct 3 Lieutenants Dong and Wade, Sergeant Osborne and Officer Cirillo insisted on changing the tire for her so she did not have to wait. They got her back on the road in less than 15 minutes. Mrs. Lyerla surprised them with an unexpected thank you note and sandwich trays the following week.

Last night, Officer Day helped a stranded motorist on Floyd Rd in need of a tire change. Officer Sorenson assisted Officer Day and were able to get the motorist back on the road.

CCPD officers and the young men with the Cobb Police Athletic League’s Midnight Basketball Program opened the final weekend with a Cops vs. Kids game on Friday evening. The program is in its second year and relies on a tried and true concept used around the world to reduce juvenile crime by providing engaging activities for youth during hours when crime is more likely to be committed. The program provides an opportunity for young people to get out of the home, away from their electronics, off the streets, and out of trouble — all while keeping them active and doing something positive. Midnight Basketball provides a safe and constructive outlet for the youth, and it also provides a chance for our officers and residents to interact in a far more relaxed environment. With the closure of this six week journey, we wanted to thank all of the kids who came out weekly to play and all the volunteers/officers who have worked countless hours to make this program the success that it!

Participants of the Cobb Police Athletic League Midnight Basketball program recognized their moms with a special presentation on Mother's Day weekend.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a resolution proclaiming May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day. On May 15, 1982, 125 people gathered in Senate Park to honor 91 officers from around the country. Police Week in Washington D.C. was born from this event and more than 5,000 officers over the last 37 years have been honored. This year, Kermit Sanders F.O.P. Lodge 13 Georgia 1st Vice President and Cobb County Police Sergeant Jon Byrum traveled to National Police Week accompanied by retired Cobb County Sheriff Deputy Carl DiMare and former Cobb County Police Officer Rachel Britton to honor the fallen officers of 2017. While in the Nation`s Capital, these three representatives of Cobb County and the State of Georgia volunteered to assist the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary and the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) with registering the surviving families for the memorial service. They attended the candle light vigil on the National Mall on Sunday, May 13th, which is a very moving and emotional ceremony honoring the more than 300 names added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial wall this year, along with the more than 21,000 names already inscribed. On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, Jon Byrum, Carl DiMare, and Rachel Britton assisted on two of the 22 charter buses that carried the surviving families to the lawn of the Nation's Capital for the memorial service. They escorted these families into the ceremony where 199 officers were recognized for making the ultimate sacrifice. Along with the executive boards for the F.O.P. and F.O.P.A., Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Speaker Paul Ryan were in attendance on the dais. Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump gave moving speeches honoring the fallen officers, their surviving families, and the Law Enforcement profession. President Trump placed the first rose into the memorial wreath.
