Welcome to the new website of the Druid Hills Patrol.

The Druid Hills Patrol (DHP) is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization, managed by volunteers, whose mission is to make Druid Hills a SAFER community.


Local police departments are understaffed, but the Druid Hills Patrol increases our police protection. The DHP's off-duty City of Atlanta and DeKalb County Police officers:

  • Patrol 8 hours per 24-hour period in the DHP vehicle
  • Wear full police uniform and equipment
  • Maintain direct contact with APD and DKPD 911
  • Have full emergency powers including arrest
  • Provide vacation and special security visits to members' homes
  • Perform home security assessments
  • Give special attention to members' homes, which are identified with a DHP yard sign
  • Document their patrol activities

The DHP officers’ ONLY assignment is to deter crime and respond to emergencies in the DHP coverage area.
