Atlanta Police Officer Max Brewer of the Motors Unit was awarded the Purple Heart in recognition of his strength and bravery during a May 30, 2020 protest in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

During one of last summer’s protests, Officer Brewer was hit by an ATV rider at the intersection of Marietta Street and Turner Street, the impact causing major injuries to his legs.
