    -Zone 1 has been seeing an increase of armed robberies and thefts of copper, aluminum, pieces of a/c units and catalytic converters.The good news is that City Council is on it's 3rd reading of an ordinance making it a violation to be in possession of scrap metal without a permit. Keep an eye out for folks with heavy buggies/carts which may contail scrap metal and call 911.
    -Ga Tech Police have arrest powers within 500' of campus boundaries. Be on the lookout for folks loitering or driving past property several times. Call 404-577-TIPS the Crime Stopper anonymous tip line.
