The second program offers a $500 bonus to “approved officer recruits who apply and successfully complete the hiring process” before the end of the year.


The third incentive is a $1,000 relocation bonus to be paid in two installments for new officer candidates moving in to the City of Atlanta


Referral applications need to be submitted before the candidate is hired.
