The CPLC Patrol provides policing to fill the gap in police presence from the City of Atlanta. The reality is, the City of Atlanta does not provide manpower or funds to adequately protect our neighborhoods. ALL of our surrounding neighborhoods (Inman Park, Virginia Highland, Druid Hills, Kirkwood, Edgewood, East Lake, Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown, Old Fourth Ward, Grant Park, East Atlanta, Morningside) have realized the need for supplementing policing via neighborhood security patrols. While a security patrol can never stop all crime, it does provide a visible deterrent and results in a measurable decrease in criminal activity.
The Patrol proactively fights crime, by helping to prevent crime.
Our off-duty APD officers are in full uniform, in a highly visible vehicle, have the power to make arrests, and are in direct communication with 911.
The Patrol creates a link between the police and our communities.
The Patrol supplements our Neighborhood Watch program. Together these two initiatives provide the most comprehensive security for our neighborhoods.
Members of CPLC Patrol are provided with phone number for patrolling officers and may contact the patrolling officers directly while they are on shift.
Members of CPLC Patrol may request Vacation Patrol, whereby an officer will monitor your home while you are away (single family homes only).
