APF Housing Headlines
The presence of police officers living in the communities they protect and serve is one of the most inherent forms of community-oriented policing - a policing philosophy adopted by the Atlanta Police Department that engages law enforcement and the community as collaborative partners in problem-solving and preventing crime.
In 2010, the Atlanta Police Foundation made a commitment to strategically develop and channel resources toward increasing police visibility - a critical priority aimed at making the Atlanta Police Department a best-in-class law enforcement agency, and the City of Atlanta a safer city.
In support of APF's commitment, 2011 marked the launch of the APF Housing Incentive Program - a strategic public safety initiative to increase police visibility in Atlanta neighborhoods, by way of housing incentives to encourage more Atlanta police officers to live in the city.
At present, approximately 19% of Atlanta police officers live inside city limits. Increasing police visibility not only deters crime, but also improves the community's perception of safety. Both play a vital role in stabilizing Atlanta neighborhoods and creating a safer place to live.
The aggressive hiring efforts of the Atlanta Police Department to reach 2000 officers in 2013, coupled with the current economic demand to stimulate the housing market, have provided a tremendous opportunity to significantly increase the number of Atlanta police officers living within city limits by 2015.
Through the support of our donors, partners, and community stakeholders, the APF Housing Incentive Program has created a comprehensive, incentive-driven model that has attracted 150 new officers to the city since January 2011, bringing the total number of officers that live in the city to approximately 375 - an increase of 33% from 2010.
