Does Athens need a police oversight board? Oconee Street’s Racial Justice Task Force has supported the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement (AADM) efforts seeking an answer to this question for our community. A comprehensive proposal has been developed to create an independent civilian board to enhance positive police / community relations and to increase accountability and trust in the complaint process when there are controversial episodes such as police involved shootings or violent interactions.
Monday’s virtual town hall features local leaders and a representative from the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement. AADM president Mokah Jasmine Johnson will preside and there will be time for questions from the public. Join on facebook or register to participate via Zoom:
