The MPSA is funded by membership and business and corporate sponsorships. These funds are separate from the MNA budget and are used to fund the patrol and its operating costs. The MPSA operates according to budgetary considerations and overall neighborhood public security needs.
THE BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
General – First and foremost, your membership goes to fund a patrol for the betterment of the neighborhood that you call home, and thereby contributes directly to the quality of living for your Midtown community. We all know that we pay taxes and should be getting full police coverage, but the reality is that intown Atlanta is still recovering from years of neglect and abandonment. We have worked to beautify our homes and properties, but we also have to invest in the community as a whole.
Since 2003, the MPSA has demonstrated a gradual but sure overall improvement in the public safety picture of the neighborhood we call home. Much work remains, but many residents, businesses, and property owners like you continue to support our work toward the reduction of public safety obstacles that interfere with the Midtown experience.
90-95% of our budget goes toward the operation of the neighborhood patrol, with the rest going toward minimal but necessary administrative expenses. All other functions of the MPSA are carried out by volunteers.
Specifics – All members receive the direct phone number to the patrol. Residential members can request a vacation watch of their homes when out of town. Our patrol coordinator serves as a consultant for improved security for member businesses, individual homeowners, condo associations and multi-unit properties. We offer a letter-of-agency service for businesses and property owners to address (especially overnight) vagrant and nuisance activity. While we are a community improvement organization (focused solely on public safety and security) rather than a private security company, we work to incorporate individual needs into our neighborhood public safety blueprint.
