In 2010, JCPD was awarded certification by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), setting a record for the swiftest time from founding to accreditation in the history of CALEA. JCPD was recertified in 2013 by CALEA with Excellence through the Gold Standards process. There are approximately 180,000 law enforcement agencies in the country and only 665 or 3.7 percent are accredited by CALEA.

Being very aware of the current opioid crisis in our country, the Johns Creek Police Department established a Crisis Intervention Team specifically trained to de-escalate tense situations with people who struggle with mental health or addiction issues. Police vehicles carry medication to counter-act heroin overdoses.

JCPD is the first agency in the Greater Atlanta area to launch an open data portal, enabling citizens, academics, and media to access police data in an interactive online format.

JCPD also offers a free mobile app called JCPD4ME for iPhones and Androids that allow people to access several services with their cell phones.
