Gwinnett Place CID increases security patrols for the holidays

As part of its ongoing efforts to increase public safety in Gwinnett’s central commercial core, the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District will once again provide increased community security patrols for shoppers and visitors beginning on Thanksgiving night and throughout the holiday shopping season. These patrols are in addition to the CID’s seven day a week patrols.

Gwinnett Place will feature private security professionals contracted by the CID to help provide shoppers visiting the more than 170 retail establishments in the area with even greater peace of mind. The uniformed patrol officers work in cooperation with the Gwinnett County Police to notify law enforcement of potential criminal activity, and also provide motorist and commuter assistance.

Shopping centers, department stores and other retailers occupy more than 385 acres in the greater Gwinnett Place area, and more than 160,000 people live and work in the area. The area has benefitted from a 39 percent reduction of crime since 2007 when the CID began its public safety efforts.
