The Atlanta Police Department has chosen a name for the unit formerly known as Red Dog: APEX, the acronym for Atlanta Proactive Enforcement & Interdiction. True, there is no “X,” but the unit hasn’t been obsessed with details in recent years and APEI doesn’t have the same ring to it.
The 36-person unit is scheduled for training March 28 through April 1. It will be under the command of Lt. J.D. Patterson.
