Mayor Greg Fischer says he'll support a mask-wearing mandate if state, U.S. don't step up
About 27 officers have called in sick this morning. Mayor Fischer said that while he understands their frustration, "at the end of the day, a police officer signs up to serve and protect the community, and we need them in good times, in bad times."
In the past couple of weeks, officers have become increasingly vocal about what they perceive as a lack of leadership by the department and Mayor Greg Fischer, saying that has endangered lives and led to the destruction of downtown businesses.
The sick calls follow a series of issues the rank-and-file officers have tried to bring to light, such as alleged stand-down orders by Mayor Fischer during recent protests that have at times become violent.
