News and Notes:

The good news is that while thefts from vehicles continue, serious crimes such as pedestrian robberies and home burglaries have been down somewhat in the neighborhood. The bad news is that membership falls off when we do not experience serious crime for a period of time.
For many months we have been able to sustain double shifts on approximately half of the days of the month. However, without more members we cannot sustain that level of service.
Please encourage your neighbors to join FBAC or renew their membership so that we can maintain the high level of coverage we have experienced for the past year.


All members call 911 first if you see a crime in progress or a suspicious person or activity, and then call the FBAC Phone. The phone number is on the schedule that is emailed to you monthly.

If you see someone or something suspicious, please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.

Note: Part one crime statistics from the Atlanta Police Department are available online and will be included in the VaHi Safety Team Reports which are distributed by Neighborhood Watch approximately twice per month. These statistics will no longer be duplicated here. If you have questions about this change, please send a message to If you do not know who your street captain is, please send a message to with your name and street address, and Eleanor Barrineau will connect you.
