It’s official! Underwood Hills joins many other Atlanta neighborhoods with employing a private Security Patrol staffed by Atlanta Police Department officers to help ensure our safety and act as a deterrent to crime in our area. The Patrol is officially underway as of the week of August 1 and officers will be actively patrolling our neighborhood. The times and dates of shifts will not be published in advance. The intent is to staff shifts randomly and based upon current and historic crime trends. We don’t want the potential bad guys to know the schedule and work around it. We are starting with three shifts per week and may increase that as time goes on and we can continue to collect more contributions. Yard signs for Patrol members were made available this week and we encourage all to proudly and prominently display their sign. Det. Kevin Leonpacher from the Atlanta Police Department came to our July UHNA meeting and spoke about the Patrol and how it will work (www.underwoodhills.org/july-meeting-minutes). We are pleased to finally have the Patrol off the ground and want to encourage you to join if you have not already. Please consult the Security Patrol page (www.underwoodhills.org/security-patrol/) for details, FAQs, and contribution information.
