Police Administration

Hello-My name is Charles T. Ziegler, and I am the Chief of Police for the City of Athens. Like each of the 33 men and women who wear our uniform or serve in civilian functions, I am very proud to be a member of the Athens Police Department. I am pleased to welcome you to the Athens Police Department Web site

The goal of the Athens Police Department is to provide our community with the greatest quality of life by extending our professionalism through the use of every opportunity, action and conveyance to reach our public. The Athens Police Department is continually trying to build better relationships with the community by soliciting their assistance. The Department employs speaking engagements at Churches, schools, civic organizations, neighborhood watch programs, and many other groups to promote partnerships. The very best relationships are built on understanding, and these types of forums are ideal for educating the citizens on what they can reasonably expect from their police department.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy your visit to our site.
