FTO C.A. BEIERMANN

COBB COUNTY PRECINCT 1

HIGHLIGHTS

  • FTO Beiermann came to Precinct 1 Evening Watch in late 2022 and immediately established himself as a leader and mentor on an already exceptional shift.  FTO Beiermann’s colleagues quickly recognized him for his level of job knowledge and as someone they could go to for advice on handling calls.  
    FTO Beiermann is a well-rounded officer who can be tasked with handling any call with aplomb.  FTO Beiermann’s work ethic leads to obvious results which are reflected in the fact that he is always among the shift leaders in arrests made, citations written, and calls for service handled.  However, his effect is further reaching.
    FTO Beiermann recently took a call from a hospital in another county where a male showed up with a badly broken arm, needing plates to repair it, among other injuries from an assault in Cobb County.  Many officers would have just written the report and sent it to detectives to investigate as leads got cold and other cases may have pushed it aside.  FTO Beiermann instead decided to spearhead the investigation himself.  FTO Beiermann spoke with the victim and a witness and gathered information about the suspects and their social media accounts.  FTO Beiermann then used this information and other tools to identify all three suspects in the assault and even interviewed the primary aggressor.  This thorough investigation led to a felony arrest warrant for the primary aggressor and misdemeanor arrest warrants for the two accomplices.
    While working a secondary job at Cumberland Mall in March of 2023, FTO Beiermann was also the initial officer to engage, pursue, and arrest a homicide suspect from Miami, Florida.  
    Due to his aptitude and level of professionalism, FTO Beiermann has been tasked with assisting the ATF and Homeland Security in the past two months on investigations in Cobb County.  
    FTO Beiermann will now begin the next chapter in his career as he begins training his next recruit in September of 2023; allowing him to impart his knowledge and expertise to the next generation of Cobb County Police Officers.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • FTO Beiermann joined the Cobb County Police Department in 2015 after 6 years of service in the United States Army. 

  • FTO Beiermann was first assigned to Precinct 3 where he served as an officer and as an FTO until 2021.

  • FTO Beiermann then joined the MCS – COBRA Unit. FTO Beiermann came to join Precinct 1 Evening Watch in November of 2022. 

  • In his free time, FTO Beiermann enjoys spending time with his wife and children.
