The Peach Drop at Atlanta Underground is expected to attract 175,000 people.
Lukasz Sajdak of the APD said officers will be on 12-hour shifts and stationed all over the area.
“We will utilize our resources to assess crowds and take appropriate action against anything which may pose a danger to the public,” Sajdak wrote in an email. “We will work with other local as well as federal agencies to assure the safety of the citizens enjoying the festivities.”
Traffic will be handled accordingly, with consideration for any credible and possible threats, as in the past, he added.
Sajdak encouraged revelers to remain aware of their surroundings, keep an eye on their property and to not leave valuables in cars.
The Marietta Police Department, which will be taking the lead on providing security to festivities on Marietta Square, is also ramping up security and adding officers.
“We currently have no threats in Marietta at all,” said Officer Brittany Wallace. “Our main plan is for everyone to have fun and a safe night.”
Wallace said the department would be coordinating with Cobb’s Sheriff’s Office and Police Department.
In Decatur, Lt. Jennifer Ross said the primary concern is drunk drivers. The department is urging people to take ride sharing services, taxis or MARTA.
“We’re doing the standard ‘Don’t drink and drive,’” said Ross. “We don’t have any large gatherings scheduled in our city this weekend.”
