The Atlanta Police Foundation was established in 2003 to provide vital support to the Mayor, the Chief of Police and the Atlanta Police Department. The organization is based on a public-private partnership model that has proven to be highly effective in the prevention and reduction of crime in other major cities. Since its inception, the APF has worked to secure and leverage private resources to fund high priority projects designed to enhance the City of Atlanta’s ability to fight and prevent crime.
As a result of the work of the APF, since 2003 there has been an increase in number of police officers on the streets and an increase in the engagement of Atlanta’s business community and neighborhood residents in fighting crime. Additionally, the City has experienced a 58% reduction in the violent crime rate and a 41% reduction in crimes overall. Furthermore, Atlanta moved from being ranked the second most violent city in America to the twenty-fifth.
Thanks to our great law enforcement officers our city becoming a safer place to live in. Please aid the Atlanta Police Foundation tocontinue their great services. Thanks!
