Fulton County Police are responsible for providing reports to the public upon request. Requested reports are often standard documents such as accident reports but can also be requests for any information available under the Georgia Open Records Act. The department's goal is to respond to ninety percent of requests for reports and information within 72 hours.
We are measuring the Department's ability to produce and document sufficient cost savings measures in order to quantify the value the Department brings to the procurement process. Cost savings can be defined as the aggregate amount of money saved by reducing costs from one year to the next.
We are measuring the number of citizen complaints received by the department involving officers. Through the use of body-worn and in-car camera systems, the department seeks to collect data to evaluate training opportunities and provide accurate documentation of laws enforcement and citizen interaction.
The Department of Senior Services manages four multipurpose interactive senior facilities which serve as focal points in the community. One of the services provided through this program is health and fitness classes. Every quarter, we measure the number of seniors participating in classes based on census levels, capacity and attrition.
We are measuring the percentage of average monthly dependency cases that were closed as a result of establishing permanency for the child client. Dependency cases are filed in the Juvenile Court alleging abuse and/or neglect of a child. For the purpose of this measurement, cases achieve permanency when a child is released from the legal custody of the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) because he/she is returned to his/her family, a legal custodian, a guardian or a new family through adoption. For the purpose of this measurement, each child client is counted as a separate case even though sibling groups usually share the same court file number.
Judges of the courts that make up the Fulton County Justice System are able to observe the attorneys representing the Office of the Child Attorney as they advocate for the children they serve. The opinions of the judges is one good measure of how well the Office is performing it duties. The Office of Child Attorney began surveying judges in 2018 and will report the results on this page on a quarterly basis throughout the year.
