ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has brought in a consulting firm to conduct a “top to bottom review” of the city’s police department.
She’s sticking to her vow to reform public safety after the fatal police shooting of Rayshard Brooks.
Her office says the Police Executive Research Forum in Washington, D.C., was created to show alternative public safety methods to police departments.
The mayor says department changes will come quickly. But Atlanta Police Union President Jason Segura told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the consultants will likely face resistance from officers.
