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.

Your Chief,
Billy Grogan
