Morningside Security Patrol Vacation Requests
Residents of the Morningside-Lenox Park Neighborhood benefit from the added security of the Morningside Security Patrol (MSP), which is staffed by off-duty Atlanta Police Officers.
The primary purpose of the MSP is to augment our regular services from the Atlanta Police Department (APD) and Home Security Systems. The MSP serves the residents of the Morningside, Lenox Park, and Johnson Estates neighborhoods, an area of the City of Atlanta that is often referred to as Morningside.
MSP Membership provides the following services:
1. Vacation coverage: The MSP will check on the homes of MSP members whenever they are out of town or away from their homes for any protracted period of time. There are THREE (3) ways to submit the dates of leaving/returning, cars they should expect to see in your driveway, contracted workers, visitors, etc.
o Fill out a card and drop it in the drop box at the Morningside Presbyterian Church
o Call and leave a message (404) 308-2304
o Send an email to Morningsidepatrol@gmail.com
PLEASE give as much advance (3-5 days) notice as possible.
2. Weekly Crime Report & Security Alerts: Members of MSP receive a weekly crime report for Morningside and the surrounding business areas we frequent. In addition, MSP members receive, as needed, SECURITY ALERTS. This is a near-real-time notification of immediate potential threats or criminal activity in the neighborhood.
3. Increased Neighborhood Security: The MSP supports 16 shifts a week. MSP Officers are known for intervening in suspicious activities and crimes in progress. Most recently, when crimes occur during a MSP shift, the MSP have been first responders to any 911 and/or non-emergency calls coming through APD’s Zone 6 Dispatch.
4. Special Events: The MSP assists the MLPA security and traffic management for our annual events such as the Celebration of Summer, Screen on the Green, Concert in the Park, & the Tour of Homes
Your support of the MSP is needed. Please join us and/or renew your membership. We are confident that the MSP contributes to the lower level of criminal activity in the Morningside Neighborhoods. Safety is on everyone’s mind today and the MSP is an excellent value.
