The APCA Security Patrol has been in existence since 1983 and was the second in the city’s in-town neighborhoods to institute a private patrol of off-duty Atlanta Police Department officers paid for by residents. Only approximately 3% of security patrol monies are spent on operating expenses. Virtually all security patrol funds go toward compensating the officers, so membership is a direct benefit to the residents of Ansley Park.
Currently we have 7 officers working in the patrol, and it is headed by Sergeant Paul Poole, who has been with us since 1983. We have 14, four hour shifts, a total of 56 hours of patrol a week. Our shifts operate during the day, at night and in the early morning hours. The times vary so that the perpetrators don’t know our schedule.
Members receive a sign for their yard, which is updated each year, and the officers watch the houses each shift if the member is out of town. Because of the vigilance of our officers and neighbors, we are the safest in-town neighborhood.
Once a year we host Meet the Officers in McClatchey Park for the children to meet Atlanta Police Department police and learn who the Good Guys are! We have motorcycle units, police horses, a member of the K-9 unit, police squad cars, balloons and breakfast as part of the event which is held in the fall.
The Ansley Park Security Patrol has a SECURITY ALERT EMAIL HOT LINE to keep residents informed of crimes within our neighborhood. It is optional for residents. If you would like to be added to the e-mail distribution list for these alerts, please join one of our levels of membership and you will automatically be added to our E-News distribution list. If you plan to be out of town, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and dates you will be out of town or use our easy online form. If you are a Security Patrol member, we will monitor your home while you are away. If you have an incident to report to Security Patrol, please email email@example.com with the details or fill out our online form here.
