In Memory of Chief Louis Graham

Chief Louis Graham

When I was appointed the Fulton County Attorney in 1999,  Louis Graham was the police chief. In fact, he was Fulton County’s first African American police chief.  He died recently, and his life was celebrated last Saturday at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church.

Chief Graham retired from Fulton County a short time later, so we did not get to work together a long time. However,  he was always professional, and I enjoyed the time we served Fulton County together. My fondest memories of Chief Graham, however,  are the discussions we had when I ran into him at Mitchell Brothers Barber and Beauty Shop on Fairburn Road. There is nothing like a barber shop for some frank talk and laughter.

I extend my deepest sympathies to his family. He was truly a public servant and will be missed by many.
