Officer Youlanda Leverette is our Community Affairs Officer. Officer Youlanda Leverette began her career with the Acworth Police Department after having served in the US Army. While in the Army, she served as a military police officer. She also served as an airman in the Air National Guard. Officer Leverette has been a patrol officer with the Acworth Police Department for approximately 6 years.
“One of most appealing aspects of law enforcement has always been the opportunities available to have a positive impact on my community. I feel very fortunate to have been able to partner with some amazing groups in the city such as Destiny’s Daughters of Promise, a program which strives to instill self-esteem, increase confidence, and provide mentoring to young women to help better prepare them for a successful future. In addition, I am an instructor for our PRIDE classes. Through a partnership with the University of Georgia, we are able to provide a free two hour class for parents and teen drivers or teens who are preparing to drive. While I have specifically partnered with a number of community groups, it is important to remember the relationships that are created by interacting with the public on a daily basis. Every time that we respond to a call, or just stop and chat with a business owner, we are helping to foster relationships and build partnerships within the community.”

The Office of Community Affairs insures that the Acworth Police Department is active in the community through its many outreach programs. It is the desire of the city administration and the chief of police to have open communications and strong relationships with residents, business owners and educators in Acworth. While each employee of the Acworth Police Department is mandated to maintain and build strong public relations, the Office of Community Affairs accepts the responsibility of providing the catalyst.
