New APD Security Service

We are excited to announce our new security service provided by off-duty Atlanta Police Department (APD) officers headed up by Lt. Jeff Baxter. The new APD security service provides:

  • Monday through Friday patrol three hours a day within our neighborhood with additional virtual coverage while patrolling in nearby neighborhoods. All member calls are answered by the officer patrolling with a cell phone.
  • Members will receive the cell phone number for patrolling officers. The cell phone is passed to other officers working surrounding neighborhoods when not patrolling in our neighborhood. Patrol officer will respond to MMCA calls if they are patrolling in another neighborhood.
  • Security checks for out of town member residents along with newspaper, trash can removal, etc.
All residents who have joined by June 28th will receive all security information, officer patrol cell phone number and mailbox security sticker on July 1st with patrol to begin Monday, July 3rd.
 
MMCA Security Fund
A number of security survey respondents indicated that they would be willing to pay more towards security. If you would like to contribute additional funds to security, please donate to the MMCA Security Fund on the Make a Payment website page. All funds raised will be used for increased security patrol within the current membership year. Names of contributors will be listed on our website.

Playground Safety at Brandon Primary Center
There was an incident at the Primary Center where a parent was picking up her child after school and was hit in the head by a lacrosse ball.  The woman suffered a serious concussion and the incident could have been much more tragic.
