Atlanta Citizen Review Board Findings

The Atlanta Citizen Review Board is responsible for reviewing and investigating complaints against APD officers and determining if those officers were in the wrong. Since the board's creation, each complaint along with the ACRB's finding has been publicly available at http://acrbgov.org/ . Recently, the board's newly appointed interim executive director Sharese Shields ordered that all ACRB findings be removed from the site. The documents are no longer available to the general public without filing an "open records request", which is a lengthy bureaucratic process involving fees.

The ACRB was created to increase transparency, and now they are trying to keep their own findings out of the public eye. Supposedly, the move was made to protect the privacy of civilians who made the complaints, but each of them made their statements specifically with the understanding they would be public.

The major effect that this move will have is removing the names of APD officers involved in wrongdoing from the internet. It will make it more difficult for Atlantans to search for and find information about these officers, many of whom are still working in the same communities.

We cannot have police accountability without transparency. Copwatch and BLOCS are committed to achieving this, and together we are releasing these documents. Since the ACRB will not be transparent, we are publishing their reports here, indexed by the names of the officers identified in the complaint. They can be found below in their original PDF format, as well as a searchable text document.
