Atlanta Police Motorbikes

Atlanta, Georgia, USA - August 25, 2013: Atlanta Police motorbikes parked at Centennial Olympic Park. The agency was formed in 1873 and has currently over 1,600 members on the force.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Every Atlanta Police officer will receive a $500 bonus on Thursday. 

The bonus will not be funded by the city of Atlanta, but rather the Atlanta Police Foundation.

The foundation has so far raised over $2 million to assist officers, and intends to purchase 20 new squad cars to replace any that have been destroyed during recent protests.
