Cobb County, located to the northwest of the City of Atlanta, is a part of the Atlanta metro area. Cobb County consistently ranks as one of the nation’s fastest growing. It borders other ever-developing counties of Cherokee to the north, and Bartow, Palding, and Douglas Counties to the west. Cities within Cobb County include Acworth, Austell, Kennesaw, Marietta, Powder Springs, and Smyrna.
Each of these municipalities have there own police force. Cobb 911 covers Marietta and Powder Springs, and other unincorporated communities in Cobb County. Kennesaw and Acworth share a 911 call center; and the cities of Austell and Smyrna have their own 911 systems.
Each of these cities has their own municipal courts and prosecutes hundreds of people every month who are arrested for offenses ranging from DUI and other alcohol involved crimes, shoplifting and other theft and fraud cases, assault & battery, domestic violence, traffic violations, marijuana charges and for failing to appear for a previously scheduled court date. Many of these cases are also prosecuted in the Cobb County State and Superior Courts, located in Historic Downtown Marietta near the Marietta Square.
Cobb County prosecutes criminal offenses vigilantly. One area the cities of Austell and Kennesaw have taken a particularly keen interest in in recent months is underage drinking. Not only do they make many arrests for underage drinking every month, with a high concentration being students from Kennesaw State University, but they have enacted “local host ordinances” to target the individuals who furnish alcohol and provide places to drink to people under 21 years of age.
