ATLANTA – On Thursday, July 28, and Friday, July 29, Team Herschel wrapped up a successful law enforcement week by visiting law enforcement officers in Cherokee, Atlanta, Alpharetta, and Spalding. At each stop, Herschel and the team were given the opportunity to learn more about ways to support them in the U.S. Senate. Herschel consistently reinforced his commitment to backing the blue throughout the week.
On Thursday, July 28, Herschel and the team delivered lunch and spoke with officers at both Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Oak Grove Precinct, and a few members of the Team Herschel staff dropped off lunch at the Atlanta Police Department’s Airport Precinct at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
On Friday, July 29, following the National Border Patrol Council announcing their official endorsement of Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate, Herschel held a roundtable with the National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, Speaker Newt Gingrich, State Senator Brandon Beach, former Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren, and other members of law enforcement. Topics included ways to improve mental health across the nation and the negative effects of the Biden-Warnock agenda on public safety and law enforcement.
Following the roundtable, Herschel held a law enforcement press conference behind Alpharetta City Hall to address the failures of Raphael Warnock with Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, State Senator Brandon Beach, and Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Speakers covered Raphael Warnock’s lack of support for law enforcement heroes and his failure to secure our nation’s border. Herschel reaffirmed how Raphael Warnock has done more for criminals than Georgia citizens.
After the press conference, Herschel and the team traveled to the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office to learn more about gang violence and the challenges officers are facing. One of the issues repeatedly addressed was the recruitment of new officers and how rising crime and the demonization of law enforcement have made it more challenging to recruit qualified candidates to serve in law enforcement.
Due to the soft-on-crime and open border policies from Raphael Warnock and Joe Biden as well as the dangerous anti-police rhetoric they have spread, officers are facing more challenges than ever. Herschel assured when he’s in the U.S. Senate, he will always prioritize law and order and do whatever he can to support and fund law enforcement.
