About The Jonesboro Police Department

The Jonesboro Police Department is one of the smaller law enforcement agencies within Clayton County. Although small, Jonesboro can create and sustain a small-town atmosphere while delivering the highest level of professional police service. The police department is comprised of twenty-six (26) sworn personnel and seven (7) civilian employees. Located fifteen minutes south of Atlanta and five minutes south of the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport, the Jonesboro Police Department services many visitors and residents of metro Atlanta. Creating a small-town atmosphere is one of the unique charms of the City and is a quality that the Police Department is proud of. Although appearances are such, the police department is faced with the same criminal activity as any other cities and can deliver the same level of service and protection as other metro agencies. The Jonesboro Police Department takes pride in having the lowest crime rate in Clayton County and strives to be the leading law enforcement agency within Clayton County.
