East Atlanta Security Patrol – Limited Time Offer!
In order to increase police presence in East Atlanta during the fall and the holiday season, the East Atlanta Security Patrol (EASP) is offering the month of September free to new and returning members! With only four entry dates per year, you must normally wait until October 1st to become a member, but with Labor Day fast approaching and lots of new families moving into the neighborhood this summer, there have been a lot of requests to allow entry before October 1st. This is also a great opportunity to invite your neighbors to become members, as patrol time is largely allocated based on where members live.
Membership in the EASP also means that you may request extra patrols when you're away from home, including Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the December holidays and for New Year’s. By submitting a simple form, members receive get patrols at their homes by both the EASP officers and APD officers.
Membership in the EASP is $50 per quarter, with a one-time charge of $15 for administrative fees and an EASP yard sign. Memberships are offered for 3, 6 and 12 months. If you join under this special offer, all memberships will officially start on October 1st, after the free month ends. This offer ends on August 31st. To become a member, visit our website at www.easecuritypatrol.com or call 404-954-1568.
In addition to extra police patrols in our community, the EASP works closely with the Atlanta Police Department and other security patrols to share information about crime threats or new patterns of crime. When appropriate, the EASP shares this information with the community via the EASP website, Facebook and Twitter.
The EASP, now completing its eleventh year of operation, is an effort to enhance public safety in East Atlanta. The EASP employs off-duty Zone Six police officers to perform additional patrols within Beat 612, which is the police designation for the East Atlanta community. All patrol officers are armed, in uniform, with full arrest powers. All vehicles are clearly marked on both sides with the EASP emblem.
