Why do I see the Druid Hills Patrol vehicle out during the day instead of patrolling at night? Don’t crimes like car break-ins occur mostly at night?

  • Many people feel more vulnerable at night and expect more crimes to occur at night, but we have been surprised by how many crimes, including home burglaries, occur during the day, even in the early morning hours of 8 to 10 a.m. 
  • Our Officer-in-Charge sets the patrol schedule based on crime data that he monitors in the APD and DKPD crime databases. The officers patrol at all hours and often during the night.
