MACON, Ga. — The network for Macon-Bibb County was taken down over the weekend after a potential cybersecurity hack, according to Chris Floore. 

Floore said they took their network offline out of an abundance of caution. They are adding additional security measures and are investigating the potential breach. 

This means officers are unable to access email or landline phones at this time.  The city reached out to state and federal security officials for guidance and assistance with the issue.
