Halford’s funeral will be held at Jackson Memorial at 11 a.m. Friday. A police motorcade will leave Turner Field for the church at 9:30 a.m.
Officer Shawn A. Smiley’s family will receive visitors from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Gregory B. Levett & Sons Funeral Home at 4347 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur.
Smiley’s funeral will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church of Atlanta at 4400 North Peachtree Road. A motorcade of fellow officers will depart Turner Field at 9:30 a.m.
