The Public Safety Liaison Unit consists of the Police Operations Manager, Mike Ayers, and four other team members. The PSL team members are each assigned to a patrol shift and perform various duties that do not necessitate the use of a certified officer. The PSL team members’ primary function is to transport detainees to the required detention facility. The PSL Unit was created after the closing of the Acworth City Jail and helped to ensure that patrol officers are free to patrol the city without extended absences due to performing prisoner transport. Acworth detainees are transported to the City of Smyrna Adult Detention Center. The phone number is available below. You can contact this agency to locate someone who has been arrested.
Bonding will be finalized within the Acworth Police Department lobby. If it is after business hours, kindly reach out to 770-974-3111 to coordinate a meeting with an officer at the department. A phone is available in the entrance area to contact 911 for this purpose as well. For bonding information during business hours, you can get in touch with the records division at 770-974-1232.
