Services

The Powder Springs Police Department is committed to providing Powder Springs residents, visitors and businesses with the highest level of police services possible.

Speed Monitoring Trailer Request

A speed-monitoring trailer is a portable device that displays a passing driver's speed as well as the posted speed limit. The intent is to alert drivers of their speed compared to the speed limit, and thereby improve compliance. The City has one speed-monitoring trailer which is available at the request of local residents. The City receives high volumes of requests, so placement will occur in the order in which requests are received. If you would like to request a Speed Monitoring Trailer to be placed on your street, please complete the Speed Monitoring Trailer Request Form.

Residential Check

The Powder Springs Police Department provides residential property checks. If you will be traveling or away from your home for an extended period of time, sign up and request that the Powder Springs Police Department check on your residential property. If you have questions about residential checks, please contact Maj. Michael Cochran at 770-943-1616 or mcochran@cityofpowdersprings.org. You may also complete our Residential Check Request Form.

Craig's List Safe Zone

This safe haven for business transactions is located in the front parking lot of the Powder Springs Police Department and is under 24 hour video surveillance. We feel confident most criminals are not going to want to commit a crime in the parking lot of a police department, especially if they know they are also being videoed. This location is available to the public 24 hours a day. There is a no need for a citizen to call the police department to schedule an appointment. We are encouraging citizens to schedule their transactions to take place in the safe zone. If someone has an issue with conducting business in our safe zone, then this is not someone our citizens should want to do business with.

Gun Safety Seminar

With the dramatic increase in the public’s escalating desire to learn more about gun safety, the Powder Springs Police Department will periodically host a gun safety seminar. This program is intended for civilians and will be focused on safety, Georgia laws, and the use of alternative weapons. The seminar is free to attend.

If you have questions about the Powder Springs Police Department gun safety seminar you can contact Detective Jody Matthews at 770-943-1616 or by email at jmatthews@cityofpowdersprings.org.
