The Atlanta Police Foundation employs a broad array of 21st century public safety initiatives to accomplish its mission. These initiatives include community programs designed to provide resources to underserved neighborhoods, as well as training to cultivate a mindset of true servanthood among the Atlanta Police Department sworn personnel.
Since 2003, APF has been providing vital strategic support to the Mayor, the Chief of Police and the Atlanta Police Department on the forefront of public safety’s future direction. In 2015, Atlanta was named a model city by President Obama’s task force for 21st Century Policing – one of only 15 jurisdictions to be given that status out of 18,000 reviewed.
Our work is far from over. Through our public-private partnership model, we will continue to pursue, privately fund and implement programming that creates a safe and just city for every citizen of Atlanta, driving out crime and enhancing the safety of our neighborhoods.
