Buckhead CID has spent more than $2.5 million since 2005 to place off-duty Atlanta Police Department officers along Buckhead’s busiest corridors during peak traffic times.  This initiative reduces vehicle idling, improves traffic flow, keeps the intersections clear and assists pedestrians in moving safely about the area.  In addition, Buckhead CID has placed additional off-duty Atlanta Police officers at key intersections around Lenox and Phipps Malls since 2003 to address the increase in vehicle traffic and pedestrian movement during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
