Independent Atlanta Citizen Review Board accepting complaints

If you were present at Atlanta Eagle on Thursday, September 10 during the raids and were one of the harassed patrons, then you have another agency who is willing to hear your complaint. The Atlanta Citizen Review Board is an independent agency founded by city ordinance in 2007, and handles (only) complaints dealing with:
  • abusive language;
  • false arrest;
  • false imprisonment;
  • harassment;
  • use of excessive force;
  • serious bodily injury; or
  • death that is alleged to be the result of the actions of a sworn employee of the Atlanta Police Department or the Atlanta Department of Corrections.
Of the above, "abusive language", "harassment", and "use of excessive force" may apply to you. If you wish to file a complaint with ACRB, they have an online complaint form as well as a printable PDF version of the form.
