News and Notes


CourtWatch Training Scheduled for August


The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office Citizen’s CourtWatch Annual Training is back on! The event (originally planned for April) is now scheduled for Saturday August 19th, 2017 from 10:00 – 2:00 pm. Check-in for pre-registered attendees will take place from 9:00 – 10:00 am. Refreshments will be served.

Training will take place at the Fulton County Superior Courthouse, 185 Central Avenue, SW, 30303 Courtroom 1C. Pre-registration is required. Please sign up at http://CourtWatchAnnualTrainingAugust.eventbrite.com

The Citizen’s CourtWatch program provides citizens with an understanding of the Fulton County Criminal Justice System. CourtWatch encourages the community to actively participate in the judicial process by attending and optionally providing a community impact statement during criminal court proceedings.

If you have any questions please contact Danielle Simpson, CourtWatch Director, 404-613-8406.

'Sliders' Targeting Vehicles at Gas Stations


Have you heard about sliders? No, I don’t mean the small sandwiches invented by White Castle. These are thieves who take advantage of an unlocked passenger door to slide into your vehicle while you pump gas and steal handbags and other valuables. Check out this story from WSB-TV, and please lock your car doors and remain alert while you pump.

Crime Statistics


These statistics are pulled from the APD Open Data Portal http://opendata.atlantapd.org/Default.aspx. It includes reports from Beat 601 and Zone 6 as a whole. Because this data was pulled from an online data file and not from a prepared report with narrative which has been provided by APD in the past, I have no additional information or context that I can provide for any of these incidents.
