About the Trolley Patrol
What is the Trolley Patrol?
The Trolley Patrol is a non-profit corporation that contracts through MDS Protective Service, Inc. in hiring uniformed, off-duty City of Atlanta police officers to patrol our streets in their own, unmarked cars. The officers carry police radios and are able to immediately respond to 911 calls. Additionally, they carry a cell phone provided by The Trolley Patrol. You can contact our officers when they are on patrol at 678-820-8239
