The SSPD has several newsletters that keep you informed about what’s going on. There is a Business Watch Newsletter geared towards the over 6,000 businesses in the city. It offers good crime prevention information on current scams and crimes effecting businesses. There is a Senior Update Newsletter that lists the current scams affecting our senior population. We also offer the Weekly Wrap Up authored by Capt. Steve Rose.  You can sign up for
any of these newsletters on our website at www.sandyspringspolice.org; on the

The SSPD offers an “Out of Town” house check.  This is a great service where officers and our volunteer unit, COPS, will check your house while you are on vacation.  You can sign up at www.sandyspringspolice.org; click
on, “I Want To” and the form will be listed there.

Next, the SSPD, along with the City offers the following.  Swift 911 is an emergency reverse 911 system in which you will be contacted of an emergency in the area.  Code Red is a weather warning system you can sign up for to let you know about dangerous weather conditions.  Smart 911 is an enhanced 911 system where our emergency responders have important
information about you and your family before we get to your home.  Finally, Nixle is a notification system from the SSPD in which we contact you on road closures, community events, etc.  All of these services can be found on www.sandyspringspolice.org on the lower left side under quick links
and on the right side under important links.

We also have some great events coming up such as the Sandy
Springs Festival on Saturday, September 22nd and Sunday, September
23rd.  Come by and see us.  The DEA Take Back Day, which is
where we collect your expired, unused and unmarked over the counter and
prescription medications.  This keeps them off the streets and out of garbage dumps. 

This will be held on Saturday, September 29th from 10am-2pm in front of the Sandy Springs Police Department.
