The Byron Police Department has been protecting the lives and property of the residents of Byron and its visitors since the city was established in 1874. The department is organized into five law enforcement divisions with additional special units. In addition to patrolling the streets of the city, the department also patrols Interstate 75.
If you need emergency police assistance, call 911. Assistance will be provided as soon as possible! For non-emergency police assistance during normal business hours (9 a.m. until 5 p.m.), call 478-956-2880.
The Patrol Division is by far the largest and most visible component of the Byron Police Department. It is the responsibility of the Byron Police Department's uniformed Patrol Division to respond to calls for service through the 9-1-1 system, as well as medical emergencies. Generally, the police patrol officer is the first Byron Police Department employee you will encounter regardless of the problem or situation.
Due to the high volume of emergency 911 calls received by the city, some calls may be handled by other specialized units allowing for uniformed patrol officers to remain in service to handle priority calls.
The Byron Police Department has a variety of programs that may include:
