NPU-T: See Something Say Something Initiative

Atlanta City Councilmember Ivory Lee Young, Jr. “Keeping you informed.”

See Something Say Something is an initiative aimed at encouraging City employees and citizens to be the eyes and ears for a safer city. A safe city requires the efforts of all. The more observant and involved employees and citizens are in their everyday lives, the less likely crime occurs undetected. If we are all watching and reporting suspicious activity, we reduce the areas where criminals feel safe committing their crimes. See Something, Say Something is aimed at creating a city where NO criminal feels safe.

The idea of See Something Say Something is to teach everyone to be a good witness and report what they see in as much detail as possible. We are not asking anyone to put themselves in harm’s way to retrieve this information, only to safely take note of what they see and hear. What drew their attention to the activity? Who was involved? What were they wearing? What was their location? How were they involved in the act? In short, the Who, What, When, Where, and How of every incident; details that will assist law enforcement in solving and often preventing a crime.

If you see suspicious activity, say something. Suspicious activity can be difficult to define, but if you see something that doesn’t feel right and makes you question the activity, call 911. Keep in mind that suspicion should be based on a person’s actions and not on their appearance, race, nationality or sex. 

We ask that if you see something suspicious in progress, call 911. Callers can remain anonymous. If a caller has information that would assist in solving a crime they can call Crime Stoppers Atlanta (404-577-TIPS (8477). The anonymous information provided through the Crime Stoppers helps law enforcement agencies in their investigations and can play a major role in the apprehension of criminals and in securing convictions.

As you go around the city during your work day you have the opportunity to become additional eyes and ears. For those of you who have radios, you will soon be trained on how to use them to report suspicious activity.

This program is for all city employees and citizens while they are at work or home. Every employee is a citizen, whether here in the city of Atlanta or in one of the surrounding cities. Being observant of your surroundings at all times is just good personal safety. Being a good witness at all times and being willing to report what you see is what will make the difference between living in a city where criminals feel comfortable operating vs. living in a city where criminals won’t operate because they know everyone is watching, taking notes, and reporting.

Join us and if you See Something, Say Something! Together we can make this partnership a success.

ADT Door-to-Door Safety Alert

Recently, a resident in Zone 4 has reported a suspicious individual going door to door saying he represented ADT Alarms and asking if the resident needed an alarm.  Please be mindful that ADT does not solicit door-to-door.  They may send solicitation through the mail and provide a number to call but no individuals go door-to-door presenting ADT.

As an added precaution, do not entertain door-to-door salesman of any kind. If you need a service or repairman make sure you call them having gotten their number from a reliable source.

Please share this alert notice with others in your neighborhood.

Crime Crack down..

http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/three-in-custody-for-678338.html
 
Three in custody for air conditioner thefts
 
Three men were in custody Tuesday in connection with the alleged theft of air conditioning units in West End.
 
Atlanta police were called about 10:45 a.m. after the men were seen putting the air conditioners into a black pickup truck on Greenwich Street in southwest Atlanta.
 
According to police on the scene, an officer spotted the pickup and began following the truck.
 
The truck pulled into a driveway on nearby Oak Street and when the officer pulled in behind the pickup, the three occupants ran from the truck, which had two new whole-house residential air conditioning units in the back.
 
One suspect was caught a short time later, and police set up a perimeter around the area. Two other suspects were in custody at 11:30.
