Something has got to be done about these electric scooters on the sidewalks. A friend of mine and I were almost plowed over when we were just walking around the block at Tech Square. The guy zoomed right between us. No regard at all for others.

APD ARREST: Atlanta Police Department Zone 2 officers arrested a burglary suspect at a home on Jett Rd. NW on July 18, 2019 after he was arrested on July 6, 2019 for breaking into vehicles. Last night our officers responded to a home on Jett Rd. near Chastain Park for an alarm call and were given access to enter the home by the owner. While conducting a search of the house, one of our officers found the suspect in the attic. The suspect was crawling behind the furnace when the officer spotted him. 25-year-old Johnny Gandy was arrested without incident and taken to the Fulton County Jail for the second time this month. This felony burglary arrest comes one day after the capture of another burglary suspect at a home on W. Wesley Rd. We thank our officers for their courage and commitment when dealing with repeat offenders in our neighborhoods. #WeCatchBadGuys
Today marks the end of the Atlanta Police Athletic League (PAL)'s summer camp and what better way to celebrate than to have an end-of-camp extravaganza featuring music, games, food and a bounce house? Children from Atlanta enjoyed burgers, hot dogs, popcorn and snow balls while creating summer memories and getting to know Atlanta Police officers. The summer camp lasted from June 3 until July 19 and allowed children in grades six to 12 to explore various landmarks throughout the city and metro Atlanta. Adventures included going fishing, swimming, learning how to golf and trips to the zoo. The goal of the Police Athletic League (PAL) is to keep at-risk youth within Atlanta engaged and away from crime through sports, mentoring and programs like the summer camp. #APDLovesKids #WeLoveATL #ATLPAL #CommunityPolicing
