Letter from Kevin Curry, VP Public Safety

A request by Kevin Curry, VP of Public Safety to spend IPNA funds for new patrol car.

A few weeks ago, our old but trusty Inman Park patrol car, the 2007 Ford Crown Vic gave up the ghost and blew a head gasket. It was not worth another repair bill to bring it back to life, so we must replace the car as soon as possible. The patrol is now being performed in the APD officer's private vehicles.

I have asked another neighborhood association patrol, namely Midtown Blue, and several APD officer's for advice on the types and models of recommended patrol vehicles. Two vehicles seem to come up regularly and they are the Ford Explorer (an SUV) and the Toyota Tacoma (an extended cab pickup). Everyone I spoke to seems to think the idea of a taller vehicle offers three distinct advantages; riding higher in the seat so that the patrol officer has better visibility, easier access in and out of the vehicle and lastly more visibility as the officers drive through the neighborhood. Also, they seem to be longer lasting vehicles given the constant on-the-road demand they are subjected to.

Homelessness and drug abuse in Little 5 Points and nearby areas

All are invited to a free screening of "Seattle is Dying" at 7 Stages, 1105 Euclid Avenue in Little Five Points, 7:30 pm, Tuesday, August 20.  

First broadcast in March 2019, this one-hour documentary explores the issues of drug addiction, mental illness, homelessness, and failed public policies in Seattle. It concludes with a look at innovative treatment solutions being pioneered in Rhode Island and a call to action. Its message speaks to some of the challenges facing the Little Five Points business district and also affecting parts of Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, Reynoldstown, Edgewood, and Candler Park.

Eric Johnson of KOMO News, the program's writer, producer, and narrator writes, "This program... asks the question, 'Why aren't we doing more? Why don't we have the courage to intervene in lives that are, in the face of grave sickness, reeling out of control?' It's called 'Seattle is Dying,' and I believe the title to be true. But it's not a hopeless program. There are ideas and concepts in the show that could start conversations about change."

Update to Three Robberies

Update to three robberies.
Below is a link to an AJC article about the apprehension on Friday morning of two suspects in the armed robberies that took place in our area on Thursday night/Friday early morning. Again we ask that if you can contribute anything to this case please notify Atlanta police department.

Recent Robberies in Our Area


RECENT ROBBERIES IN OUR AREA

Just a brief note to advise that a series of three armed robberies were reported on the night of Thursday, June 20th in our area. One happened in Candler Park on McLendon. One occurred on Caroline Street by the Edgewood Retail District, and the third in Inman Park on Euclid near Hurt Street. The police report that the perpetrators were three black males driving a “green or brown box type SUV.” Two of the males were armed with handguns. While we hope that this is a one-off incident, please be super careful and aware of your surroundings, especially at night. Watch out for slow moving vehicles. Lastly, if anyone in the area around Euclid/Hurt has video feed that might have captured some of this, please contact either Inman Park Security or Atlanta police.
