We Did It!

The Dine-out at Osteria 832 this past week was a great success and put us over the finish line.

With your help and the help of our partners, we have raised enough money to install FIVE License Plater Readers in Virginia-Highland. Locations will be finalized in the next few weeks and then we will turn this over to the Atlanta Police Foundation and Flock Safety for install and operation. 

In addition to Osteria, we want to thank other commercial property owners and businesses in the neighborhood making significant donations including:

Doug Landau (Dark Horse and Neighbor's)
Stuart Meddin (The Meddin Company)
Scott Stern (Highland Real Estate)
Fifth Group (La Tavola & El Taco)

Special Thanks to our key partners, and to all of you. Check out the honor roll of donors.

Who is Officer Saul Alter?

Meet Saul Alter – the newest member of the Virginia-Highland Security Patrol. He grew up in Los Angeles and attended Fairfax High, alma mater of a long list of celebrities including writer James Ellroy, Guns and Roses founders Rob Gardner and Tracii Gun, producer and writer of M*A*S*H, Larry Gelbart, and high school dropout, Demi Moore. Alter went on to study the University of Phoenix.

With twenty-five years on the job, Officer Alter has served with East Point police and is currently with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office.  He tells us he enjoys the work because of the variety and his tip is not to leave anything in your car. When not working fulltime for the Fulton County District Attorney’s office or part time for us, he enjoys time with his family including his wife, three children, a dog and a cat. Finally, we asked what he might have done if he hadn’t decided to be a police officer – he would have been an attorney. He didn’t tell us if he would have worked for the prosecution or the defense, but I think we can guess.
