They will have an opportunity to chat with officers from their respective Police Zones and address any crime they may have seen or heard of in the area. This forum provides a safe environment for the seniors to feel comfortable communicating their safety concerns. Food and prizes will be provided.
“This effort was brought about by my deep concern for the safety of some of our most precious citizens, said Post 3 At-Large Councilmember, Andre Dickens. “Atlanta’s seniors make up the fabric of Atlanta and its rich history and culture. Without the contribution of our senior community Atlanta would not be the thriving metropolis it is today.”
