The hullabaloo about Atlanta police launching their 15-officer Beltline patrol team has been deafening, and most of the talk has been positive, save the moron-rich comments gallery of a certain metro daily. Interestingly, as the Saporta Report points out, a 2007 study lead by a Georgia Tech professor prophesized that current Beltline safety measures should unfold exactly as they are. The following efforts and others echo the study: "The city has formed a police team to patrol Beltline's greenspaces; worked with Trees Atlanta to trim vegetation; improved lighting; and installed markers to help users identify their location."
