Creating a stronger, safer East Lake
ABOUT THE ELP
The East Lake Patrol (ELP) is a community based, non-profit organization promoting sustained safety and security through advocacy, education, and partnerships with our local police precinct. ELP is supported through memberships from neighbors and local businesses residing within East Lake that choose to be proactive about crime in our community and keeping our streets safe.
Street by street, The East Lake Patrol builds a stronger and safer community for all residents by employing off-duty Atlanta Police officers to patrol our neighborhood during the day and night, 7 days a week.
PATROLLED BY OFF-DUTY ATLANTA POLICE OFFICERS (APD)
Have a greater peace of mind knowing that you'll enjoy addtional police protection for your home or business. Increased visibility deters criminals before crimes are committed. Should the need arise, our off-duty police officers have the training and ability to subdue and arrest criminals in East Lake.
SCHEDULED PATROLS FOR YOUR
HOME WHILE YOU'RE AWAY
Going out of town? Don't spend your vacation worrying about your home. Members can simply fill out the vacation request form and have the peace of mind kowing that our ELP officers are doing extra patrols of your property while you are away.
INCREASED PATROL HOURS DURING THE HOLIDAYS
AND HOT ZONES EXPERIENCING INCREASED CRIMINAL ACTIVITY
Criminals are opportunists and know that the holidays are times of increased travel and vacant homes. They are also creatures of habit often repeating crimes in a specific area. Our officers increase their patrol hours during the holidays and when we notice increased crime waves in a specific area.
COMMUNITY CRIME AND SAFETY UPDATES
Members will have access to a private newsletter discussing community crime and safety updates.
Members receive an ELP yard sign to show their home is protected and receives increased patrols from off-duty police officers. *There is an initial $25 dollar fee for the signage package which includes a yard sign and two window stickers for your home or car.
COFFEE WITH A COP
Twice yearly, members will be invited to sit down with our patrol officers to discuss safety in East Lake and how they can protect their homes.
