Georgia Association of Police Chiefs issues Resolution in support of hate crimes bill

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation shared a resolution drafted by the Georgia Association of Police Chiefs supporting legislation in the Georgia General Assembly to combat hate crimes in the state. Georgia is just one of four states that don’t have a hate crimes statute. It did have one, but it was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2004.

House Bill 426 passed in the House and is now up for consideration in the Senate.
