True crime over the years has become such a popular genre, entire networks are devoted to the subject, most notably Atlanta-based Court TV and HLN as well as Oxygen and Investigation Discovery, known as ID. And frequently, these programs are used as a way to boost the image of both the police and district attorneys. The Atlanta Police Department has had a tough year in 2020 with more than 144 reported homicides to date, the most in nearly two decades. So the timing of “Atlanta Homicide,” debuting Monday, Dec. 28 at 9 p.m. on ID, is fortuitous.
