The new Atlanta Public Safety Training Center will reimagine law enforcement training and Police/Fire Rescue community engagement. Building the Center will:

  • Improve morale, retention, recruitment and training for APD and AFR professionals and ensure that Atlanta attracts and motivates those most highly committed to careers in law enforcement
  • Set a national standard for community engagement, neighborhood sensitivity and devotion to the civil rights of all citizens by law enforcement
  • Embrace police reform and cultural sensitivity through an extensive training and educational partnership with the National Center for Civil & Human Rights
  • Facilitate collaboration and joint training between Atlanta’s police, fire/rescue agencies and their local, state and federal partner agencies
  • Welcome the community to its public spaces, including walking paths, picnic areas, a working Community Garden and weekly Farmers Market
