On Wednesday, Kreher told the city council he'd like to hit Mayor Shirley Franklin "in the head with a baseball bat" due to his frustration over disabled cops not being able to get claims paid. He later apologized for the comments.
"It's important that the mayor realize my comments were inappropriate," Kreher said. "My anger wasn't pointed at her."
Kreher said officers have asked repeatedly to meet with Franklin, but a meeting has not been granted.
"We'd like to see a review from outside of the policies and procedures of NovaPro and how they're handling our disabled officers," Kreher said.
On Oct. 12, 1997, McCain came to the aid of Rick Sowa and Pat Cocciolone, who were shot while responding to a call. Sowa was killed and Cocciolone badly injured. Cocciolone, who is still being treated for the brain injury she suffered, has been unable to get NovaPro to pay for a ramp for her home, McCain said.
Atlanta police chief Richard Pennington was not available for comment Thursday afternoon.
"I would have never dreamed this would happen when I left a medical career to join the police force," McCain said.
