Once again the Acworth Police Department will be “Covering the Bases” to raise money for the continued support of the Horizon League. The mission of the Horizon League is to…provide children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities the opportunity to participate in athletic, social and cultural events, develop lasting relationships among their peers, coaches and parents, and show them that they are an important part of their community by creating an environment of inclusion for both the kids and their parents.
Covering the Bases is an award winning program that raises awareness and funds to support the Horizon Field. The field is a synthetic surface which allows children with physical and cognitive disabilities to play organized sports. Covering the Bases is based on a partnership between the citizens of the community and the police department. Thus far, the police department has raised more than $150,000.00. 100% of all proceeds go directly to the field. This amazing event, starting next year on September 16th 2016, has a host of family activities that include, an outdoor movie, bounce houses, carnival games, face painting, midnight kickball tournament!!!
The Acworth Police Department is committed to serving our community through proactive policing, professionalism, and community partnerships. Our Core Values include Courage, Obligation, Dedication, and Enforcement. As I reflect on these standards of performance and commitment that we have placed on ourselves, I am reminded of what a tremendous responsibility our officers have accepted. I am well aware of the need for employing the best of the best personnel and providing each member of this agency with the equipment and training necessary to carry out our mission effectively, safely, and professionally.
It is my responsibility to serve as the balance to ensure that we are responsible stewards of the personnel, financial resources, and powers of a governing authority that are indeed necessary for the accomplishment of our charge. I have the honor of overseeing some of the best trained and most professional police officers and administrators in our state. Being mindful of these factors, we cannot go it alone. We need your prayers, support and input.
I am so proud to serve at home. You see I live here, I shop here, and I am fortunate enough to work here. It truly is my heart’s desire to provide the police services that I would expect if I were any informed and active citizen in this community.
I am very proud of our personnel and their commitment to this community. By immersing The Acworth Police Department in the community we have developed unparalleled relationships with the people that we serve. Because of our philosophy for community and partnerships we have recently received some very prestigious awards of recognition.
I encourage you to get to know us. Perusing our website is a great way to start. You will see many of the opportunities that are in place for you to spend time with us and communicate with us on a personal level. And once you get to know us you will see that our whole agency shares my philosophy of community. My office is open. Please let me know how I can serve you.
