I think that Trulia's beta site for crime data is very good - I like Trulia graphics and they produce a heat map, which is really what you want. See the web reference...

Otherwise, drop by the APD's zone 1 office on Maple in Buckhead, and ask how you can obtain beat book data, and pin map reports...you can sign up for zone level alerts, here.

Furthermore, as Cross Creek has repopulated, I'm confident that someone has stepped up as a crime czar - there's some neighbor who has more door by door data on this than anyone else, and someone on the board can probably connect you and help you get more involved.

It does seem to have been an increase in this type of crime. You can get a monitored alarm system for under 600 and monitoring service for about 20 per month. This is a deterrent. There are products that reinforce door frame which make it virtually impossible to kick in, window locks that require the glass to be broken to be breached. You can buy security doors for about 100 at home depot. This kind of crime is a crime of opportunity. The harder you make it to get in, the less likely you will be targeted.
