Georgia Governor Declares State of Emergency, Authorizes 1,000 Troops to Protect Georgians


On Monday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued Executive Order 07.06.20.01, which declares a State of Emergency across Georgia and authorizes the activation of as many as 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops.

“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” said Governor Kemp. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have declared a State of Emergency and called up the Georgia Guard because the safety of our citizens comes first. This measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets. Enough with the tough talk. We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians.”

The Georgia Guard will provide support at state buildings, including the Georgia State Capitol, Georgia Department of Public Safety Headquarters, and the Governor’s Mansion.

This aid will allow state law enforcement personnel to increase patrols on roadways and throughout communities, especially those in the City of Atlanta.

Following weeks of dramatically increased violent crime and property destruction in the City of Atlanta, the July Fourth weekend saw over thirty Georgians wounded by gunfire, including five confirmed dead.

The governor took to Twitter on Sunday evening to send his condolences to the family of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner, who was shot to death near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed.

Two hours following that Tweet, after a man was killed not far from that same location, his comments were more stern.

“This recent trend of lawlessness is outrageous & unacceptable,” he said. “Georgians, including those in uniform, need to be protected from crime & violence.”

Along with the shootings, a group of people attacked the Georgia Department of Public Safety headquarters.

The building, on United Avenue in southeast Atlanta was pelted by rocks, fireworks and spray paint, according to a DPS spokesperson.
