Our Midtown Blue public safety force acts as the “eyes and ears” of the Midtown community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Comprised of more than 40 off-duty Atlanta Police Department (APD) officers with full powers of arrest, Midtown Blue provides an added layer of public safety services to supplement APD regular patrols.
Midtown Blue’s goals are three-fold: 1) reduce crime, 2) ensure that people feel safe and secure, and 3) respond quickly to traffic and other incidents. Using the latest technology, we expand our reach and effectiveness. Our public safety strategy includes patrolling, monitoring, education, collaboration and enforcement to protect and serve all who live, work, and visit the Midtown Improvement District. As a result, for more than a decade, the Midtown district has registered consistent decreases in crime, making it one of the safest communities in metro Atlanta.
Midtown Blue's team of more than 40 off-duty Atlanta Police Department (APD) officers provides 'round the clock coverage, augmenting APD’s on-duty patrols. For extra support and street patrol presence, we also launched the Midtown Blue Public Safety Patrol.
