Beat 601

Beat 601 Map
Our beat is #601 which has the same boundaries as the neighborhood of Virginia Highland. It is bounded by the BeltLine to the west, Ponce de Leon Avenue to the south, Briarcliff Road to the east, and Amsterdam Ave. to the north.
There is a minimum of one officer per beat per shift assigned with a patrol car. However, because officers ride alone, our assigned officer might need to race to another nearby beat to provide backup to another officer in a dangerous situation.
