"The Atlanta Citizen Review Board (ACRB) is the investigation-focused civilian oversight agency responsible for overseeing the Atlanta Police Department's (APD) 2,000 sworn officers and the 230-sworn officer Atlanta Department of Corrections (ADC). Created three years after the fatal shooting of a 92-year-old woman in a botched drug raid, the ACRB receives, investigates, adjudicates, and issues disciplinary recommendations on complaints received from Atlanta's 472,000 residents. The ACRB also runs a mediation program, conducts outreach, coordinates an innovative volunteer program, and offers policy recommendations to the chief of police or chief of corrections."
