APD Zone 6 Commander Pens Letter to Residents
Dear Zone Six Communities:
In recent times, our nation has experienced some very trying times as it relates to the relationships between law enforcement agencies and the communities for which they serve. Communities throughout the country voiced their concerns through many different avenues which included protests and demonstrations. The City of Atlanta was not exempt from these experiences. Although stressful, the officers of the Atlanta Police Department rose to the occasion and served all of our citizens with dignity and respect. We took an oath to serve our citizens and we look forward to our continued and committed service.
During these stressful times, you (our citizens and business partners) supported our officers in many ways. In expressions of your support, we thank you for all of the gifts that you shared with us. We thank you for the gratitude shown through gifts of food, snacks, drinks, flowers, handshakes and hugs (just to name a few). These gestures certainly brightened our day and filled our hearts with joy. It is truly our pleasure to serve such fine citizens. Again, we look forward to our continued service to the communities.
Major Timothy D. Peek , on Behalf of Atlanta Police Department Zone Six Officers
