While all crime is bad and needs to be addressed, this doesn't represent an alarming crime report especially since it covers more than Chamblee and Brookhaven. for example Mercer University Drive is on the otherside of I-85 " Simple assault/battery was reported on the 3200 block of Mercer University Drive at 11 p.m."

Ok Roger That, though that wasn't what I was saying. I was just saying that it looks like proposed staffing levels could more than adequately cover the crime on Buford Highway and adequately patrol the rest of the region. Though speaking of increased patrols can we get Brookhaven decals for our cars so the Brookhaven Police force know who to focus on for ticketing? ;-)

Be cautious with the assumptions; the incidents listed on the crime mapping sites are of selected or sampled reports and are not representative of the criminal and police activity. I've noticed the info listed here and on the other e-paper and on the different crime mapping sites never seems to correspond. And for some reason most of the incidents on Buford Hwy in B'haven are listed on the N Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch.
