Atlanta Police Department Zone Boundaries Change Affects Piedmont Heights
Effective Sunday, March 17, 2017, Atlanta Police Department’s change to its Zone boundaries changed the Zones responsible for Piedmont Heights coverage. Piedmont Heights and Morningside now have portions of their neighborhoods in both Zones 2 and 6. Former Beat 213, which includes much of Piedmont Heights and Morningside became Beat 613 in Zone 6. In Piedmont Heights, Wimbledon and areas to the north remain in Zone 2 in Beat 212. Rock Springs and areas south moved to Zone 6, Beat 613.
We coordinated with both Zone Commanders on March 18 to voice our concern over the split coverage. Both Zone Commanders assured us the change will mean faster patrol response in our area because Police Dispatch will send the closest unit on a call, no matter which Zone it is in. The change will also mean both Zones 2 and 6 will patrol Cheshire Bridge Road.
We will continue to coordinate with both Zones 2 and 6 and will keep you informed of changes as they occur. This Zone change will not affect the Piedmont Heights Security Patrol.
