The Atlanta Citizen Review Board receives complaints from members of the public concerning sworn members of the Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Corrections Department. The Board reviews the complaint, and may require an investigation into the complaint. The Board may also conduct public hearings and study broader issues that may be of concern to the community. The Board may advise the Mayor, the President of Council, Council members, and the Chief of Police and Corrections Department with the purpose of improving the ability of police personnel to carry out their duties, and to improve the relationship between the Department, Corrections and the community.
Ordinance & Bylaws
The Atlanta Citizen Review Board (ACRB) was established by Ordinance (City Sec 2 2201 Establishment of the Atlanta Citizen Review Board) as an independent agency in 2007 and amended with subpoena power in May of 2010 (ACRB-Ordinance-Amendment 10-0-0773). The purpose of the legislation is to ensure that city departments directly responsible for public safety, particularly the Police Department and the Department of Corrections have the proper support of the government and its various agencies. It is designed to provide citizen oversight of misconduct accusations against sworn members of the police and corrections departments in the City of Atlanta
