Public Safety

The Cobb Chamber’s annual Public Safety Appreciation Breakfast and Appreciation Week allows the community to pay tribute to all public safety personnel. To kick off the highly anticipated week, the community attends the Public Safety Breakfast and celebrates the public safety nominees. A highlight of the breakfast is the presentation of the Public Safety Employee of the Year award and additional awards of Merit, Valor or Distinguished Achievement.

Congratulations to this year's 25 nominees!

Help us show our appreciation to our nominees and all other public safety heroes during Public Safety Appreciation Week. Appreciation Week gives the community the opportunity to ban together and show appreciation, not only to the nominees, but to all the hard-working public safety personnel from National Park Services to the Georgia National Guard. Business groups, community groups, students and more get together to make and deliver gift baskets, write thank you letters to personnel, catered food or snacks and put messages on their social media or marquees to celebrate and thank public safety agencies throughout Cobb and in Georgia.
