Public Safety

Fulton County residents expect to be safe at home, at work and in their communities. In addition, they want their communities to be ready to handle public safety emergencies, ranging from fire to storms. Achieving the outcome that “all people are safe” requires that individuals and businesses take proactive steps to be prepared for these situations and that the County – in partnership with municipal and state agencies – also demonstrates preparedness, and responds quickly and effectively to incidents. Finally, residents expect the justice system – from the jails to the courts – to process cases in a fair, timely, and respectful manner.
