All officers of the Atlanta Police Department are set to receive a $500 bonus as a thank you for their efforts and long hours worked during the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing protests in our city.
The Atlanta Police Foundation is providing the funds for the bonus, which are supported by donations. No public funds are being used for this
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms told CNN yesterday that the morale is down among officer's on the force. Yesterday there were a "higher than normal" number of call outs from the police, following the announcement of charges against two police officers involved in the fatal shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.
