CRT Mission and Philosophy
The Crime Response Team was formed in May of 2013 as part of the Dunwoody Police Patrol Division to provide the Department with the ability to quickly address emerging crime trends and problem areas. The CRT allows the Department to direct resources to a specific problem without diverting Patrol officers from responding to calls for service. The overriding philosophy of the CRT is that crime can be deterred from occurring through highly proactive enforcement and through directed enforcement following creative problem oriented policing strategies.
The Crime Response Team consists of three patrol officers and one sergeant working in a variety of marked and unmarked vehicles, bicycle patrol and foot patrol - depending upon the specific problem they are addressing.
CRT Goals and Priorities
The goal of the Crime Response Team is to answer all traffic and criminal complaints in your area. The main priorities of the CRT are:
- Traffic Enforcement and Investigations
- Suppression of Property Crime and Crimes Against Persons
- Narcotic Investigations
- Problem-Oriented Policing Projects
Traffic Hazards and Complaints
The Traffic Complaint Form is designed to provide citizens the opportunity to alert the Dunwoody Police Department to potential traffic hazards in their neighborhood or a particular location within the City.
Such complaints might be drivers repeatedly disobeying a stop sign at an intersection, drivers failing to slow down in school zones, or drivers routinely speeding at a particular location.
If you have observed a potential traffic hazard and would like the Dunwoody Police Department's Crime Response Team to look into it, please use our ONLINE TRAFFIC COMPLAINT FORM to notify us.
Speed Trailer Requests and Reports
The use of a speed trailer aids in educating the public. Especially the driver who may be unaware of exactly how fast they are going. While traffic enforcement through visible patrols and traffic citations remains an important component of our overall traffic safety strategy, the use of our speed monitoring trailer bolsters our efforts to reduce speeding through education and awareness.
Residents who would like the speed monitoring trailer placed in their neighborhood are invited to use our ONLINE SPEED TRAILER REQUEST FORM to notify us. Due to the high volume of requests for the speed monitoring trailer, placements will occur in the order in which requests are received.
For speed trailer results reporting, visit our SPEED TRAILER PAGE.
Criminal Complaints or Tips
The Dunwoody Police Department utilizes state of the art technology to receive information on criminal activity including potential drug "hot spots", crimes against persons or property, and other important information to help resolve or deter criminal activity within our community. Specific information such as addresses, detailed suspect descriptions, makes, models, colors, license plates and special features of vehicles as well as any other pertinent information can be helpful to the Department when investigating tips and complaints.
