The Dunwoody Police Department was founded on April 1, 2009, shortly after the City of Dunwoody was incorporated in December 2008. The Dunwoody Police Foundation was founded in 2019 as a way of supporting the Dunwoody Police Department by providing equipment and training, aid programs, and helping foster partnerships throughout the community.

FROM THE CHIEF
A key ingredient to a safe city is having a supportive community that works closely with its police department. Fortunately, we have always had that positive relationship with our community here in Dunwoody. With the formation of the Dunwoody Police Foundation, I am confident the department and citizens working together can accomplish even more to keep Dunwoody safe.
