Public Safety: Midtown Blue

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.

Services we provide:

  • Immediate response to emergency situations, supplementing APD
  • Regular patrols in highly-visible Midtown Blue vehicles, averaging more than 2.5 officers per shift – 24/7, 365 days a year
  • A 24-hour joint operations center with APD Zone 5 as part of Midtown Blue’s offices, enabling seamless coordination
  • Maintaining and monitoring the region’s most extensive network of high-definition video cameras, which cover nearly 90% of the public right-of-way
  • An array of crime-prevention and public safety programs and classes offered to Midtown property owners, property managers, businesses, office workers and residents

Midtown Blue is here to serve our community. Call 404-817-0500 to speak directly with an officer to:
