The Atlanta Police Department would like to say thank you to Tony Conway, CEO and Founder of Legendary Events, for hosting the department’s officer appreciation event on Thursday, May 23, 2019. The event brings our officer together for a dinner and moments of genuine camaraderie. Mr. Conway’s and the Atlanta Police Foundation’s continuous support of the department is very special to us and we look forward to next year.
RIDE A MILE IN MY LANE: When you block a LIT – Lite Individual Transportation – lane, it causes a traffic delay because it forces cyclists, scooter riders and other users into oncoming traffic. This disrupts traffic flow and increases commute time. Ordinance 19-O-1110 prohibits passenger vehicles & commercial trucks from stopping or parking in a LIT - Lite Individual Transportation - Lanes. Motorists found in violation of the ordinance are subject to a $100 fine for passenger vehicles and $1000 for commercial trucks.

The 42nd Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival will be held in Piedmont Park on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, 2019. The festival is one of the largest free jazz festivals in the country and traffic congestion is possible in the areas surrounding the park. We encourage you to ride MARTA or use rideshare services when traveling to and from the festival. The closest MARTA stations to the event are Midtown station and Arts Center station. If you see something suspicious, speak to a nearby law enforcement officer or call 911. More information on the Atlanta Jazz Festival here: https://bit.ly/2WmLc3S
Look at how vehicles are treated when an owner gets a DUI (OWI/DWI). Typically, a breathalyzer gets put on. Why not treat firearms in a similar manner: able to shoot, like for hunting, self-defense, and other legal uses, but electronically disabled if illegal activity is suspected? Such a system would take many years to implement. Why not start today?
Atlanta's finest at the airport training and keeping us safe. Thank you.
