It’s been a year since tens of thousands of people hit the streets demanding an end to police brutality and racism in the wake of George Floyd’s murder.
A year later, the effects of those protests are taking a toll on police departments as experienced cops are retiring or quitting in droves.
It’s happening from coast to coast.
“Police departments all across the country now experiencing an exodus of officers from the force,” said a reporter with NewsNation Now.
In Washington, DC a record 313 police officers have retired or quit since last June.
“I think we’re really hurdling towards a catastrophic situation here,” Gregg Pemberton with the DC Police Union told WUSA 9 TV. From CBN.
