The Atlanta Police Foundation and the Atlanta Police Department are hosting a contest giving the community a chance to post a 30-second video to social media explaining why they are proud of the women and men who serve as part of the inaugural #APDProud social media contest.
The contest ends Aug. 24.
The video must be a positive portrayal of why you take pride in the Atlanta Police Department and a minimum of 15 seconds and a maximum of 30 seconds long. All videos must:
1. Be submitted via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram only
2. Include the hashtag #APDProud
3. Tag the Atlanta Police Department (@atlantapolice) and the Atlanta Police Foundation (@atlpolicefdn)
Judges will select one winner to attend the Crime is Toast Breakfast on Tuesday, Aug. 30, as a guest of Chief George Turner.
From a press release:
“APD has proven that creating a safe place to live, work and play takes more than enforcement; it’s about building community through engagement and providing a secure environment where opportunities for advancement are possible. As the conversation between communities and police departments across the nation continue, we encourage residents, businesses and visitors to join us and be the force behind the force.”
