Frequently Asked Questions

Police

How do I obtain a copy of a police or accident report?

Come to the Records Unit anytime Monday through Friday from 7 am until 5 pm. Call 770-429-4532 for additional information.

How do I arrange for fingerprinting?

Fingerprinting is done Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. Check in at the Police Lobby. A Staff Officer will be notified and escort the applicant to the print room and back to the lobby.

Does the Police Department offer GCIC background checks and alcohol pouring permits?

Yes.  You must have a Georgia photo ID and work permit if not a US citizen. In addtion, you must have no felony convictions within the last 5 years and no current alcohol/drug probation. Omitting any arrests regardless of disposition will disqualify you for 6 months. Two or more alcohol/drug convictions within the last five years will result in denial.

GCIC background checks  $15 cash; 9 am – 3 pm  M-F (next day pick up)

Alcohol Pouring Permits: $25 (new); $15 (renewals) cash; Mon/Wed/Fri,  8 am – 4 pm (next day pick up)

How can I report vehicles that are parked illegally?

If vehicles are observed illegally parked on the street or even private property, immediately call 770-422-2505 (police non-emergency) and ask that an officer be dispatched if possible.  No action can be taken to correct the situation unless an officer observes the violation. Cell phone photographs attached to a Kennesaw Support System ticket are not an acceptable substitute.

Does the police department provide a “safe transaction zone” for sales transactions of items initiated online?

Yes, the police department located in City Hall has a large lobby area which is an excellent safe area for transactions. Upon request, a police officer will even stand by.
