SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN Authorizes The Return Of The Elite COBRA Unit To Combat Violent Crime!

After the absence of retired Sheriff Victor Hill’s  elite squads, the murder rate reached an all-time high in 2021.  In 2022, the murder rate exceeded the 2021 all-time high.  

After reviewing the violent crime stats, Sheriff Levon Allen, a former commander of the Elite Fugitive Squad, acknowledged  the immediate need for specialized crime fighting units.  Sheriff Allen has now reinstated the elite COBRA Unit that gained legendary status for “striking” down crime.  COBRA has already hit the ground running with 23 arrests in their first two days of operation!

Clayton County can look forward to the return of several other well known elite squads that were effective at preventing, controlling, and reducing crime!
