Sick and tired of our sidewalks?

Your DHCA is too!

And we want to do something about them!  The first step towards any remediation of our abysmal sidewalks is to understand the size and scope of the problem.We can do this and we desperately need your help. Thanks to COVID 19, we’re all spending a lot more time walking, running, skating and riding up and down our streets.   I’m asking you to send me a quick email with a photo of the worst of the worst.  Take a picture, note the specific address of the sidewalk and the side of the street if possible. We believe that neighbors who know each other look out for each other, and that is our most effective method of deterring crime. o that end, we’re going to create an inventory of our sidewalks that we can use to inform fact-based discussions with stakeholders including DeKalb County.  

Send your sidewalk pics (with address) to publicsafety@druidhills.orgSpread the word to your friends and neighbors. #safewalk

Neighborhood Watch

We believe that neighbors who know each other look out for each other, and that is our most effective method of deterring crime. With Neighborhood Watch, neighbors keep an eye on each other's homes - especially when they are at work or on vacation.  To make this work we need street captains (and co-captains for the longer streets). To date, we have 45 street captains!

Street captain responsibilities:

  • Maintain a contact list for every house on the street and share it with everyone on the list. 
  • Forward monthly crime reports to your list.  (It will be sent to you by the Druid Hills Neighborhood Watch Leader, Ellen Meshnick.)
  • If a crime does occurs, the victim must call the police. Then either email your neighbors or tell the street captain, who will do so.

Note that you don’t have to belong to the Druid Hills Civic Association nor the Druid Hills Patrol. (However, we encourage you to join both.  If everyone joins the Patrol, it can extend its hours and its patrol area.)

Join the team!
