With nearly 40 years of law enforcement experience, George Turner is one of the most sought-after subject-matter experts in the fields of law and order, physical/ corporate security, executive leadership/management and emergency response.
As a loyal public safety professional, he led the operations of the largest law enforcement agency in Georgia. In 2010, Turner was appointed the Chief of Police for the City of Atlanta. He was integral in the paradigm shift of the policing profession. Under his leadership, the Atlanta Police Department targeted gang violence, alleviated aggressive panhandling, and enhanced police officer recruitment efforts. Atlanta’s crime rate dropped to a 40-year low with a 27percent reduction in crime. In 2015, the Homicide Unit had an 84-percent clear-up rate.
Additionally, Chief Turner understood the importance of combining new age technology and old-fashioned police work to fight and solve crimes, deploying the latest technological advancements as part of the Department’s crime-fighting strategies including video surveillance and predictive policing. After respectfully serving, he retired from the Atlanta Police Department in December 2016 and moved into the private sector.
In 2017, Chief Turner was named the Vice President of Safety, Security, and Parking for the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and State Farm Arena. When Atlanta’s current administration sought his expertise again, Chief Turner returned on loan from the Hawks to the City of Atlanta in late 2018 as its Public Safety Commissioner. As Public Safety Commissioner, he coordinated Corrections, Emergency Preparedness, Fire, and Police and helped make them function more cohesively. He returned to the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club following the assignment in April 2019.
Chief Turner has received numerous commendations from the Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for his work on protective details with various U.S. Presidents, high-level officials, and heads of state. He has worked closely with the State of Georgia and other local law enforcement on a wide array of special assignments and details.
Born and raised in Atlanta, Chief Turner was educated in the Atlanta Public Schools and attended Clark Atlanta University. He holds a Bachelor of Art degree from Saint Leo University in Criminal Justice and a Master’s in Public Administration from Columbus State University. He completed the United States Secret Service Academy Small Detail Training, Police Executive Research Forum (Senior Management Institute), and Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police Command College.
He has been married to Cathy Turner for 40 years and they are the parents of four adult children and eleven grandchildren.
