All About 9-1-1 and What Happens When You Call
  • This informative piece tells about how calls are prioritized at the 9-1-1 center, provides tips on how to efficiently interact with the operator, and information on what to do if you need to follow up on something that you reported (or need to escalate beyond the 9-1-1 center).
  • NPU-W and the Grant Park Neighborhood Association provided the information at the link above.
  • Don't forget that 9-1-1 is THE ONLY number that the city of Atlanta uses to track and dispatch calls for police response or assistance.

Southeast Atlanta Community Initiatives
  • Contribute Your Security Cameras - Help fight crime by registering your security cameras with Trolley Patrol. Citizen cameras in the neighborhoods can help police solve crimes and identify suspects. Contact Trolley Patrol to  learn more about this voluntary initiative and get the camera registration form. Your camera will not be connected to a network, information on camera locations in our neighborhoods is just being collected in advance to help know where to get images and video footage when crimes occur in a specific area. 
  • Improve Safety: Report Streetlight Problems - Streetlights reduce crime and increase community pride. See more information about reporting burned out or malfunctioning streetlights at this link (information courtesy of the GPNA).

This website is heavy on links to take you directly to the proper sources for getting up-to-date information. The "three-click rule" is in effect too, if you have to click on more than three links on this site to find what you need, well, then we've screwed up.
