I never pay attention to what the media says. Also the media tells about all the people that you all are hiring but not all the people who are leaving the department, so I figure if you hire 200 officers by the end of the year you are really just replacing the ones who have left. So I stand by my statement that you all can't handle what you already have, not a bash on the officers you just dont have the manpower. I also don't listen to statistics either, not sure how long you have been on but APD has a repretation for misclassifying crimes to make the city look better than it actually is.
    I'm pretty much gonna go with ask and ye shall receive...I answer calls every day from airheads who buy 200-300k houses in new subdivisions in high crime areas of Atlanta

    NEWSFLASH..The reason that 3500 sq. ft., 6 bedroom house in that new subdivision off of Bolton Rd is priced at $180,000...is b/c it's on BOLTON RD

    "Yeah officer, I see all those thugs with their pants around their ankles, and I hear sirens/gunshots everyday, and I see the prostitutes and the drug houses...but..but..something told me this was a good spot for my Yanni-listening, Honda Odyssey-driving, Brooks Brothers-wearing family to live"

      wouldnt it be easier just to put everyone on the same digital system. Why dissolve an entire department when you could just update their radio equipment?

      btw,why are they still on Analog? Thats an issue the higher ups need to hash out

        I also live in zone one and Ihave great responce time from the APD.I really appreciate them and they are all always helpfu lto me and my family.

        btw I love how folks stereotype bankhead and Bolton as if these are the wrost neighborhoods in the city.

          My subdivision is about 2 miles from Bolton. I am glad you get great response time but I don't. I also appreciate the job that the Zone 1 officers do and think that the problem is a manpower and management issue. And Bankhead is one of the worst neighborhoods in the city. I can't speak for Bolton Road because I have never seen anything criminal happening on Bolton Road. None of the guys that I know who work for APD live in the city because of the crime issues.

            alpha1906 - Thank you for your comments! Two years ago, Zone One led the city with the highest crime rate, but last year we had the greatest reduction in crime and are currently leading all the other zones (-22%).

            the1fromgeorgia - The reason most officers do not live in the city is because we are targets. They know we carry guns, bulletproof vests, and other equipment in our vehicles so they are constantly being broken into. That is why I tell officers not to put the blue line stickers on their vehicles or keep their equipment in their vehicles. Other reasons I do not live in the city is because of the public school system and high property tax rates.
