Chief of Police
Roosevelt Smith is a dedicated and loyal public safety professional currently overseeing the operations of the Lithonia Police Department (LPD). On November 12, 2014, Smith was appointed by Lithonia Mayor Deborah Jackson and City Council as the Chief of Police for the City of Lithonia.
Chief Smith is a 27 year public safety veteran with experience in and around the state of Georgia. His goal for the Police Department is to assure the community that the agency is operating at the highest level of national law enforcement standards. Maintaining the highest standards and continually advancing and improving its capabilities, the LPD provides a family friendly and safe environment throughout the city.
As Lithonia continues to grow as a city, the LPD continues to prepare and evolve into a local response law enforcement agency. Working closely with local, state and national agencies, Chief Smith has expanded the methods, practices, and capabilities of the Department personnel to stay informed, and to provide increased security in the areas of drug enforcement and homeland security.
The general structure of the Department is as follows:
