Attendees will get to participate in a ride-along and learn about the department’s organization, command structure, procedures, laws of arrest, patrol division, criminal investigation, crime scene unit, dispatch, municipal court, community oriented policing unit, park rangers, Co-Responder Program, and more.
NPP The Chamblee Nonprofit Partnership Program (NPP) is designed to strengthen, promote, and connect local nonprofits by enhancing organization visibility while assisting in their development and capacity-building efforts.  By facilitating various roundtable discussions, hosting lunch and learns, providing grant opportunities, and other benefits members of the NPP can expand their capacity to serve the community. Cities and nonprofits often have shared missions and goals, and the collaboration between the two represent a winning combination for affective positive social change in communities.

Regular meetings for ambassadors will begin in 2023.
NEP - Copy The Neighborhood Engagement Program (NEP) empowers neighbors to create healthy communities with a high quality of life by collaborating and actively partnering in improving their neighborhood. A high quality of life is a place where residents know each other’s name, rely on one another, and work productively with the city, schools, and businesses to create a desirable place to live. The NEP aims to create stronger neighborhood relationships and build community resilience by supporting neighbors in organization around a goal they identify then engaging in the collective action necessary to turn the community’s vision into reality. The program will begin in one community at a time. For more information, email
