Two new pro-police billboards have joined the Atlanta skyline ― both downtown and in Buckhead ― thanks to a conservative think-tank group seeking support for law enforcement.
“No police, no peace,” the billboards state in all-capital letters next to the image of an officer. The Washington D.C.-based Heritage Action, part of the Heritage Foundation, unveiled the billboards Monday, including two others in New York City and three in Dallas, Texas. The Atlanta billboards are currently set to be up two weeks, a spokesman for the agency said.
“Georgians want safety, security and a clear vision for how to quell the violence. I am excited to announce the launch of these billboards today because you cannot have peace without the police,” Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action, said in an emailed statement. “Atlanta is facing rising violence, deep cuts to public safety, and the resignation of top police officers. This is a time for all citizens and leaders to come together to support the important work and sacrifices of our law enforcement officers and push back against the left’s campaign to defund the police.”
One billboard is located on Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Marietta Street and the other is near the intersection of Peachtree and East Paces Ferry roads, both prime spots for Atlanta drivers.
