Police officers in Atlanta will receive a one-time $500 bonus from a private foundation as thanks for working during recent protests that have taken place in the city in response to the deaths of George Floyd and other black Americans.
Local news affiliate WSB-TV 2 reported that the bonuses will be provided by the Atlanta Police Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization set up in 2003 to support the Atlanta Police Department and city officials.
