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 9-1-1 calls.  Additionally, they carry a cell phone provided by The Trolley Patrol.
