Delivering Resources for Our Officers

In order to effectively fight crime, we must ensure that the brave men and women who put their lives on the line for our safety have all the resources necessary to protect and serve our community effectively.

Together, WE will:

  • Offer competitive compensation packages and promotion plans to attract new law enforcement talent and reduce high turn-over rates
  • Reevaluate our police zones to make sure we have adequate police presence in each neighborhood
  • Recruit veterans to take advantage of their specialized training and assist with their transition into civilian workforce
  • Employ specialize officers to provide additional police presence at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to ensure the safety of travelers
  • Partner with mental health and wellness organization to provide therapy and psychological screening services to our officers to help them cope with the highly stressful situations they encounter daily
  • Provide the latest equipment and technology for our officers, such as bullet proof vests, body cameras, high tech fire uniforms and simulated training
  • Deliver first-in-class sensitivity and mental illness training and de-escalation and alternatives to arrest tactics for our officers
  • Require the police department to be more responsive and transparent in the way it collects and shares information with the public
