Creating a Safer Westside

A Different Approach to Reducing Crime

When Dave Wilkinson came onboard as Atlanta Police Foundation’s (APF) President and CEO in 2005, he brought with him 22 years of experience with the Secret Service and one overarching lesson—to create successful outcomes, you need a collaborative approach. As head of the APF, that’s meant working with the Atlanta Mayor, Chief of Police and local business partners, like the Chick-fil-A Foundation, to build—and execute—a plan for a safer Atlanta. 


"What we've done on the Westside is replicable. It's been the collective synergy from all of our partners that's made it possible." - Dave Wilkinson, President & CEO, Atlanta Police Foundation
