All People are Safe

Fulton County residents expect to be safe at home, at work and in their communities.  In addition, they want their communities to be ready to handle public safety emergencies, ranging from fire to storms.  Achieving the outcome that “all people are safe” requires that individuals and businesses take proactive steps to be prepared for these situations and that the County – in partnership with municipal and state agencies – also demonstrates preparedness, and responds quickly and effectively to incidents.  Finally, residents expect the justice system – from the jails to the courts – to process cases in a fair, timely, and respectful manner.

Performance Dashboards and Initiatives

Strategic Performance Dashboard
Strategic performance measures track activities which often extend beyond the power of one department or even the county government to affect on its own, but we believe improvements can be made in these areas through cooperation between departments and through partnerships with other government agencies, non-profits and the private sector.  View dashboard
Department Performance Dashboard
Department performance measures are specific to county departments and are designed to track performance for the programs and services provided by each department. Departments set annual performance goals and report quarterly on their progress toward those goals. View dashboard
Please note that the department dashboard is  currently being updated and revised with an expected completion date of April 9th.
