On March 25th, Cobb County did something they have never attempted. Every agency in the county came together for a day of education and an opportunity to connect with the public. Citizens were able to engage with the department leaders and discussed many topics, from policing to emerging technology and what they can do to help keep Cobb County one of the best places to live, work, and play. All the city municipalities were represented, including police departments with Marietta, Smyrna, Powder Springs, Austell, Acworth, and Kennesaw. Cobb Police and Sheriff's office were both there as were representatives with Cobb fire.
Blue Thanksgiving was asked to facilitate lunch for all in attendance and we were proud to be a part of this incredible day of fun, fellowship and education. Our own (Retired Chief) Tim Cox, (Deputy Chief) Steve Kucynda and Douglas Hill were busy tending the grill, while board members and volunteers assembled burgers and dogs. Everyone in attendance enjoyed a great lunch outside under pavilions on this day filled with sunshine and mild temperatures. We would like to thank the management at Publix on Cobb Parkway and Jiles Road in Kennesaw for their continued support and for their donation, which made this lunch possible. If you missed this event, you'll want to be sure and attend the next one! We look forward to next year's forum and hope that we will be again invited to be a part!
