City of Atlanta residents and businesses are now required to register their security and burglar alarm systems. In 2012, the Atlanta Police Department responded to 65,000 alarm system activations, 95% of which were false alarms or alarms that were cancelled in route. These calls represent more than six percent of total 911 dispatches. With every call taking an average of 20-30 minutes, the equivalent of 8-12 full-time police officers were dedicated to responding to false alarms, thereby taking away valuable public safety resources from more pressing matters.
Fines assessed for false alarms.

NPU M is conducting the annual process of reviewing our bylaws, as mandated by the City of Atlanta. A bylaws committee was formed, and it submitted a proposal for revisions at the September 23rd meeting of the General Body.

Amendments to the Bylaws were also proposed from the floor.

In partnership with District 2’s Atlanta Intown paper, Councilmember Kwanza Hall is launching “Keep It INtown,” a campaign to encourage Atlantans to shop local and buy local. One of the components of the campaign is a series of segments on City Channel 26. Each segment will feature three District 2 small, independent businesses. We envision 4-5 segments in 2012, with the possibility of extending beyond next year.
The first segment, “Keep It INtown for the Holidays,” debuted today on City Channel 26. It features Highland Bakery, Seven74 Boutique, and Vintage Barber Shop. Please see this link to the segment: http://vimeo.com/32586777
If you would like to nominate District 2 small, independent businesses from your neighborhood for segments in 2012, please do!
