Learn more about the Midtown Blue supplemental public safety program.
Midtown Alliance’s supplemental public safety program has operated on the ground every day for more than 20 years. And in that time, the district has registered consistent decreases in crime, making it one of the safest communities in metro Atlanta. In 2023, 93% of the crime in the Midtown Improvement District (MID) was non-violent property crime.
While the program is funded by commercial property owners, we proudly serve everyone who spends time here.
Our public safety strategy includes patrolling, monitoring, education, collaboration and enforcement. We work shoulder to shoulder with our MID public safety partners representing: Atlanta Police Department (APD), county and state law enforcement agencies, MARTA, Georgia Tech, SCAD, Emory, the Federal Reserve, commercial and residential property owners, private security and residents.
Need assistance? Remember, in an emergency, always call 911 first. Then call Midtown Blue at 404-817-0500.
You can speak directly with our team 24-7 to report suspicious activity or discuss any safety and security issues or concerns.
114K people spend time in Midtown each day. Our role focuses on public property primarily within the confines of the 1.2 square mile Midtown Improvement District. We also work with private property managers to ensure maximum coordination of public safety resources and strategies. We provide useful information that keeps lines of communication open between law enforcement, private security and commercial property managers.
Midtown Alliance’s work to maintain a safe district permeates everything we do - from cutting back overgrown vegetation and reporting street light outages to adding new traffic signals for pedestrian safety and more.
Midtown Blue’s public safety officers monitor in real time the region’s most extensive network of high-definition video cameras, covering 90% of the public right-of-ways. The camera system was upgraded in 2020 to include more views and new fiber technology transmission. See a map of our camera locations.
