In a letter sent to Chief George Turner today, the LGBT Advisory Board writes:
Dear Chief Turner:
The members of the LGBT Atlanta Police Department Advisory Group have been advised that APD Major & Zone 5 Commander Khirus Williams will be retiring from the force this week.
The advisory group members feel that Major Williams’ retirement would be a huge loss to the LGBT community and the citizens of Zone 5. His dedication to the force and full support of the LGBT Advisory Group and the LGBT community at-large has been outstanding and very much appreciated.
We would like to thank Major Williams for his dedicated years of service and we would support him to remain on the force in Zone 5.
The Advisory Group continues to value working with you, your staff and the LGBT APD Liaison Officers to strengthen the relationship between our community and the APD.
Please feel free to contact myself or any member of the Advisory Group with any questions or concerns.
Sincerely, Glen Paul Freedman Chair LGBT Atlanta Police Department Advisory Group
