Administrative Orders Related to Use of Force Advisory Council’s 14 Day Recommendations

June 2020

Immediately upon receiving the Use of Force Advisory Council’s 14 day recommendations, Mayor Bottoms acted upon three of the 10 recommendations and asked for legal and operational review on the remaining seven. The recommendations that were immediately adopted and acted upon by the Administration are:

  • Commit to improving officer compliance and public transparency of body worn camera footage
  • Create a centralized repository for witness footage of use of force by officers
  • Extend powers and improve community awareness of Atlanta Citizen Review Board (ACRB)

Thank you to the members of this Advisory Council for your diligence and thoughtfulness. Together, we will harness this moment in history to reimagine our use of force policies and elevate the Atlanta Police Department as a national model for modern policing.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
