Quinten Howard, Atlanta: “I think they deserve more money because we have to depend on the police to protect us, to protect our homes while we are at work. There’s a lot of burglaries going on in Atlanta right now and I feel like if they can find money to support a Beltline, to support a new dome, hey give the police some of that.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Calvin Benton, Atlanta: “I don’t think they should have gotten any raise. They’ve already got all of the benefits.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Tami Dotson, Atlanta: “My opinion is that the police need at least a 25 to 30 percent raise (because) every day they go out they are risking their lives, so they deserve to be well compensated. For them to get a one percent increase is an insult. It’s very disrespectful.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Eddie Kornegay, McDonough: “They should receive more than a one percent raise due to the fact that they are out there risking their lives everyday.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
