He began his career in law enforcement 30 years ago and for this he is known as a dedicated man who rose through the ranks and always showed professionalism. He has extensive experience in policing and will be an asset to this agency. According to DeKalb Lawmakers, it is stated “Since 1987 Dale Holmes has been one of…DeKalb’s finest, dedicating his life to ensuring we…are safe and can sleep soundly at night, move about in our community as we please, knowing that he is committed to being one of our guardians of the gates.” Holmes as a resident of Rockdale County vows to continue serving community in this guardian role.

Holmes has not only been recognized internally for his service, but with due diligence and perseverance as he transitioned from the street patrol to directing and leading law enforcement personnel, and eventually executive management.

One of the Most “important and lasting mark” of Holmes is Marquel’s pledge, a campaign to end celebratory gunfire. This was initiated following the death of a 4-year-old boy in 2010.
