The 2016 Lilburn Police Department Annual Report provides information about the personnel, programs and training used to enforce the law and prevent crime in our city. Over the past five years, violent crime has decreased 38 percent in the Lilburn city limits. Chief Bruce Hedley said that this is directly linked to the positive partnerships the department has developed with the community.
With recent acts of aggression seen around the world, officers are focused on ensuring that the city's residents, businesses and visitors feel safe. Personal contact with the public has allowed officers to provide crime prevention tips to both residents and business owners. In return, this contact has developed relationships that have led to the public providing tips on criminal activity.
