Through the work of the APF, there has been an increase in number of police officers on the streets and an increase in the engagement of Atlanta’s business community and neighborhood residents in fighting crime.
Additionally, the City has experienced a 58 percent reduction in the violent crime rate and a 41 percent reduction in crimes overall. Furthermore, Atlanta moved from being ranked the second most violent city in America to the twenty-fifth.
Our programs are strategically focused to complement the Atlanta Police Department’s vision of becoming the safest large city in America. We give high priority to programs, like the Secure Neighborhoods Initative, that address the need for more police visibility and improved police operations.
We also provide strategic counsel to the APD and aid in bringing private and public sector resources together for short and long range security planning for the City.We continue to partner with the business community and the citizens of Atlanta in an effort to make Atlanta the safest and most inviting city for all its residents, workers and visitors.
