Based on the principles of Community Oriented Policing, the Inman Park Security Patrol (IPSP) was organized to enhance the police patrols provided by the city. Funded through residential and business memberships and various fundraising activities, the Patrol is coordinated through IPNA and provides the neighborhood with an added layer of police protection as well as creating a personal link between the police officers and the community. Off-duty Atlanta Police Department Officers patrol Inman Park in IPNA’s own marked patrol car. In addition to assisting our regular APD Beat Officers with calls in Inman Park, the Patrol also provides added benefits to members such as Vacation Patrol and Business Drop Ins. The personal, dedicated connection that the IPSP Officers have with the community has helped make Inman Park a safer neighborhood. Resident and Business members proudly display a distinctive placard in their yards or windows.
Who can join?
Any resident or business in the Inman Park Security Patrol area of operations may join. Residents and businesses in multi-unit buildings and developments should check with their property managers first – special pricing applies to these properties.
How much does it cost?
Single-family (up to three units) Residential Memberships start at $200 a year. Several levels of membership are available. Bronze Level ($200) helps provide basic Patrol service.
