Quality of Life Unit

Quality of Life Unit

As part of DeKalb County’s Operation Clean Sweep, the DeKalb County Solicitor-General, Donna Coleman-Stribling, formed a new unit dedicated to addressing quality of life issues that impact DeKalb County citizens.

The Quality of Life Unit works closely with DeKalb County’s regulatory agencies dedicated to assessing and resolving residential and commercial quality of life problems.

The unit is comprised of two assistant solicitor-generals, a community prosecutor, an investigator and a legal assistant. The division is responsible for the prosecution of all cases involving code violations, blight, nuisance and other issues that may plague a community or business in DeKalb County.

These cases go a long way to making DeKalb safer because they disrupt criminal activity and force criminals to find a new place to do “business”.  Law-abiding citizens enjoy a better quality of life and improved property values.  It is a multi-prolonged effort involving police, prosecutors and the community working together so that the more than 700,000 citizens living in DeKalb can enjoy the quality of life they deserve and want despite these trying economic times.

If you have a nuisance problem in your community and need to report an issue, please contact DeKalb County Code Enforcement at 404-587-3700 or log on to the Code Enforcement Website.

If you have a question for the Quality of Life Unit, you can reach the unit by phone at 404-371-2201 or email solicitorinfo@dekalbcountyga.gov
