The city is currently experiencing an increase in robberies. Many of these involve the theft of IPhones.  Zone 5 would like to remind everyone to be aware of your surroundings and “If you see something, Say something”  Please call 911 and report any suspicious activity.

During the past week Zone 5 Investigations Unit conducted an area canvas in the Old Fourth Ward and developed some positive information pertaining to robberies in this area. In addition, The Thunder Detail operated in the Boulevard corridor and the Castleberry Hill community Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights’.
One subject was arrested for armed robbery, which brings the total number to 48 year to date.  For the week of Nov 13 – 16, 2011 Zone 5 officers made 176 physical arrests.  Two subjects were arrested for entering auto, which brings the total number to 57 year to date
One subject was arrested for burglary, which brings the total number to 31 year to date.  These individuals are all repeat offenders.

An arrest was made of a suspect for the homicide on 103 Fort St that occurred on September 20, 2011.

Please continue to support your neighbor associations and your NPU’s.  Please support the Atlanta Police Departments Clean Car Campaign by not leaving valuables in your vehicle.

Keep It INtown

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:  

If you would like to nominate District 2 small, independent businesses from your neighborhood for segments in 2012, please do!
