Neighborhood Watch – Safety Awareness Training

Atlanta Police DepartmentOn March 10, 2012, the Atlanta Police Department will conduct a four hour training program for safety awareness. This program will run from 9am-1pm and all participants will receive a certificate upon completion.

A good neighborhood watch is a sign of a strong community. Many people don’t know what to do or how to participate, so a program like this can help. We have a Facebook page and a “text tree”, but are always open to new ideas.

They will cover a wide variety of topics including:

  • How To Build Your Community – Obtaining grants and resources.
  • Refuse To Be A Victim – Safety tips & prevention.
  • Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design – Sara Model, problem solving, reactive.

You must RSVP by Friday, March 2nd to secure your place. Call 404-546-5550 or email sabthomas@atlantaga.gov to secure your spot.

Beat Restructuring for Atlanta Police Department

Adair Park is now in Beat 301 instead of Beat 303 within the Atlanta Police Department. This means we are no longer in a zone with Pittsburgh, we are now with Capitol View and Capitol View Manor. The Police underwent the beat restructuring based on number of incidents. For more information, please visit www.atlantapd.org.
