We Value What You Have To Say!

The Chatham County Police Department is launching a strategic planning process to help chart our course for the next three years, and give our law enforcement agency a solid foundation on which to build.

A vitally important part of that process is hearing from the citizens we serve. What kind of job are we doing? What can we do better? What priorities would you like us to focus on? Those are the kinds of questions we would like you to answer as we gather input from you and your neighbors.

We would appreciate a few moments of your time, and ask you to fill out the survey found here: Take Our Survey.

We’re excited to hear your thoughts, and thank you for sharing your opinions with us.

We Stand For honesty. integrity. service.

The mission of the Chatham County Police Department is to provide excellence in police services while building partnerships with the citizens in the community in which we serve.
