Grant Park Security Patrol (GPSP) in Atlanta, GA is a nonprofit corporation(IRS 501C4), which hires off-duty City of Atlanta police officers to patrol the streets of our neighborhood, to supplement the regular patrols of APD. Although "off-duty," these police officers still retain full policing powers, allowing them to stop and question suspicious persons, ask for IDs, and check for prior arrests and outstanding warrants.  Patrol schedules are constantly updated to address the crime patterns the neighborhood experiences.
