Atlanta funds going towards ‘Cop City’ with City Council vote

by The 100 Companies

In early June, the Atlanta City Council motioned to approve a $31 million project to construct a $90 million police and fire training complex. The cost for the training center is intended to be split between taxpayers and the Atlanta Police Foundation.

Over 300 people addressed the council concerning the vote with a range of opinions about the city’s police force concerning race, political affiliations and more. The majority of speakers voiced their opinion that the money could be better spent elsewhere.

In the final vote, council members added new requirements to the proposal in order to safeguard the public.
