Atlanta Police Return to Buckhead for Holiday Shopping Traffic Regulation


December 03, 2018

ATLANTA, GA. – The Buckhead Community Improvement District of Atlanta, Georgia, is re-launching its holiday traffic officer program according to an online news story from mdjonline.com. The program places extra law enforcement officers around one of the busiest shopping districts in the region to help regulate holiday shopping traffic.*

The program, created seven years ago, helps traffic move more efficiently during peak rush hour by keeping intersections clear while people are exiting and entering retail developments and offices. The Buckhead CID funds and manages the deployment of officers with the Atlanta Police Department who are working off-duty. This year, the CID has increased patrol by adding three more locations for easing traffic at Stratford and Lenox roads in the Buckhead Loop.

“We want to do our part to help residents and visitors coming to Buckhead’s shops, restaurants and hotels to have an enjoyable and unforgettable experience,” said Jim Durrett, executive director for the CID. “As we continue to work on the complete street along East Paces Ferry Road, which includes a multiuse trail and pedestrian crossing signals from Roxboro Road to the Gordon C. Bynum pedestrian bridge, we hope it will also make it easier for pedestrians to access Lenox Square mall and the nearby MARTA station when shopping.” 

Officers this year will be posted to regulate traffic at intersections that correlate to Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, including:

  • Peachtree Road and Lenox Road
  • Peachtree Road and Lenox Parkway
  • Peachtree Road and Stratford Road
  • Lenox Road and East Paces Ferry Road
  • Peachtree Road at Monarch Road (the mall entrance)
  • Lenox Road at Kingsboro Road
  • Lenox Road at Wright Avenue
  • Peachtree Road at Oak Valley Road
  • The Buckhead Loop
