BCID police officer traffic control program on hold

Due to the continued protest activities in the city, Mayor Kasim Reed announced Monday morning that more than 6,000 hours of overtime have been worked by Atlanta officers, who will remain working on 12-hour shifts with no approved vacation time into the foreseeable future.

Therefore, the Buckhead Community Improvement District’s traffic control program will be suspended until further notice. There will be no-off duty officers posted at any of the intersections usually covered in Buckhead during lunch or afternoon peak rush hour until the 12-hour shifts have ceased.

Also, as reported by the media this morning, there is a planned protest to take place around the Lenox MARTA station starting at 7 p.m. this evening.  You are advised to plan your travel and commute accordingly.

      So what was the feedback on the lack of officers directing traffic (while directing protestors at our expense)? Specifically, did anyone notice the Habersham/Piedmont/Roswell area? I already have my doubts about the effectiveness of the officers there, so I’m wondering how rush hour went without officers there.
