Uniform Patrol Division

The Uniform Patrol Division comprises approximately two thirds of all Departmental personnel and handles a wide variety of uniform services in addition to basic Patrol Operations. As with most progressive law enforcement agencies, the Department embraces the “Community Oriented Policing” philosophy. This allows the UPD to garner support from the citizenry directly and in a timely manner, thus creating a pro-active rather than re-active response to crime and emergencies. This facilitates the highest quality of leadership and experience for such a large command.

The UPD also contains several smaller units of a specialized nature. This is necessary because some law enforcement tasks require specialized training, experience, and equipment. Officers assigned to these units meet rigorous standards and commit to reside in the units for minimum specified periods of time.

Geographically, the UPD patrols an area comprised of 324 square miles, as Henry County is one of the larger counties in Georgia. Interstate 75 and Interstate 675 intersect the jurisdiction thus creating the need for decentralization of UPD personnel. Therefore, the jurisdiction, is divided into two main precincts, North and Central.

The North Precinct is geographically located in the City of Stockbridge while the Central Precinct is co-located at Department Headquarters in McDonough, plus one mini-precinct located in Tanger Mall in Locust Grove.

A senior manager holding the rank of Captain commands the North Precinct. In addition, a Watch Commander holding the rank of Lieutenant commands each watch or shift. The Watch Commander will control patrol operations within the designated precinct area and direct the Shift Sergeants, who oversee the actual patrol operations.

The precinct areas are subdivided into patrol zones to facilitate the quickest response times. Since the Department’s inception, the call for service volume has increased dramatically. Concurrently, Henry County has become one of the fastest growing communities in the United States. This has created the need for flexibility and creativity in patrol operations. Officers assigned to the UPD enjoy many benefits not seen in less progressive agencies such as a four-day work week and a take home car program for resident officers. These benefits enhance the public image while projecting visibility throughout the community and represent the progressive nature of the UPD.

The Uniform Patrol Division provides a wide range of services to the County and is broken down into nine units:
