Atlanta PD Officers Are Absent For Second Night In A Row

Atlanta, GA – A full day after Atlanta police officers walked off the job, Atlanta PD is still missing most of its officers who are supposed to be on-duty Thursday night.

Atlanta police sources told The Police Tribune that many of the officers who did show up for their shift are refusing to respond to calls or leave their precinct.

All officers have been mandated to work 12-hour shifts, according to police sources.

That information coincides with what International Brotherhood of Police Southeast Regional Director Vince Champion told The Police Tribune Thursday.

Champion also told CNN that some officers were “just refusing to leave the precincts unless an officer needed help.”

The city is not making many statements on the matter, but they have continued to deny that they have a staffing issue.
