Since November 2018, the Tucker-Northlake CID has funded additional DeKalb County Police officers to provide increased patrols throughout the district. This holiday season, the CID will be tripling these additional patrols throughout the area.
“Savvy consumers aren’t the only ones looking for good deal this season,” says CID Executive Director Matthew Lee. “Criminals are also planning for the holidays. We’re working to stay several steps ahead of their shenanigans and the message is getting out among the depraved. Stay out of Tucker. Those who choose to prey on businesses and consumers will be caught, prosecuted, and face consequences.”
The CID is fortunate to be in a relatively safe area and to have the Tucker Precinct, North Central Police Precinct, and DeKalb County Police Headquarters located in the CID. No other community in the County has a higher police presence than Tucker.
“It’s not just the increase in officers making a difference,” says Lee. “People are looking out for each other and security cameras and license plate readers have increased significantly across the City. It’s public enough that any criminal with enough sense to read the paper should know that, in their line of business, Tucker is no longer the land of opportunity.”
The Tucker-Northlake CID is pleased to partner with the DeKalb County Police and the City of Tucker to help keep Tucker-Northlake a safe and inviting place for businesses, employees, customers, and the residential community. Be smart, be safe, and may all have a rewarding holiday season.
