Programs offered by the Atlanta Police Department, with support from the Atlanta Police Foundation, which help empower positive change for the officers and citizens of our city include:
Atlanta Housing Fair
The Atlanta Police Foundation has a goal of increasing the number of City-employed police officers living inside the City of Atlanta by 5% every year for the next three years. Currently only 22% of Atlanta's police officers live within the City limits. This event is just one strategy the Foundation is using to increase homeownership among Atlanta Police Department officers in Atlanta, and is part of a larger, multi-program strategy to increase police visibility, reduce crime and improve emergency preparedness for all Atlanta residents.
Crime Stoppers Atlanta
The Atlanta Police Foundation and the Atlanta Police Department launched Crime Stoppers Atlanta on January 29, 2007.
An anonymous tip line, Crime Stoppers is an internationally utilized program that works on the basis of a strong partnership between the community, the media, and law enforcement. Over the years Crime Stoppers has maintained an impressive national conviction rate of over 95%.
