Atlanta police officers did not answer calls in three of the six areas of the police department a few hours after ex-policeman Garrett Rolf, suspected of killing African-American Rayshard Brooks, was charged, CNN reported citing several sources in the Atlanta police department.
According to the channel, “unusually many” night shift officers said they were sick.
In turn, the police department denied this information.
Earlier suggestions that multiple officers from each zone had walked off the job were inaccurate. The department is experiencing a higher than usual number of call outs with the incoming shift. We have enough resources to maintain operations & remain able to respond to incidents.
