Cutting crime in Atlanta was one of Mayor Kareem Reed's big initiatives when he entered office in 2010. On January 19th, 2012 when he gave his State of the City address he highlighted some of the successes. "We have cut crime across every single zone in the city of Atlanta by between 10 percent and 16 percent, depending on the zone," Reed stated. Some watchdog groups such as Politifact.org point out that the boundaries of the zones recently changed and that examination of zone crime statistics before the change found that crime did decrease in the city overall but crime increased by 3 percent in zone 3 and decreased by just 4 percent in zone 4.
