Special Operations

How do most criminals get to and from the scene of the crime? If you guessed "in a vehicle" you're right. Traffic enforcement is about more than just writing tickets... it's about catching criminals.

The officers dedicated to traffic and drug interdiction issues in Conyers are known as the ACE (Advanced Criminal Enforcement) Unit. Their goal: to keep the roadways safe and reduce the number of accidents through law enforcement and education.  The ACE Unit consists of several divisions including traffic, Marshals Unit, School Resource Officer and the K-9 Unit.

Two highly skilled K-9 units work to keep the streets of Conyers safe and drug-free. The Conyers Police Department's K-9 unit was formed in 1998 in response to the increased problems with drugs in the area. Since the unit's inception, the K-9's have located well over a million dollars in drugs and illegal currency.

Our K-9s are titled KNPV Belgian Malinois imported from Holland.  The dogs are trained to detect the odeors of marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, and heroin. The dogs are also trained to track humans, conduct building searches, and apprehend violent offenders.

 

The K-9 Unit maintains the highest degree of national certifications provided by the North American Police Association (NAPWDA), and the K-9 Unit is on the front line in the war against drugs. If you are interested in requesting a K-9 demonstration for your local school, business or organization, please contact the Conyers Police Department.
