“Every day officers across Georgia put their lives on the line to protect our communities and all Georgians,” said Senator Perdue. “At this time, our nation’s police forces need the support of all Americans in their mission to protect and serve. I join all Georgians in thanking our brave law enforcement officers and their families for their sacrifice and dedication to our community.”

“The Peace Officers Association of Georgia is appreciative of the support of Senator Perdue and his work in the Senate to represent all Georgia Peace Officers in their efforts to serve and protect the citizens of Georgia,” said John Edwards, Executive Director of the Peace Officers Association of Georgia.
