The Use of Force Advisory Council was launched on June 10, 2020 by Mayor Bottoms with the goal of evaluating Atlanta Police Departments’ Use of Force procedures and developing recommendations on areas for improvement. The Mayor has directed the group to develop two outputs: 1) 14-day report on initial findings, https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.atlantaga.gov%2Fhome%2Fshowdocument%3Fid%3D46786&data=02%7C01%7CLLaRue%40AtlantaGa.Gov%7Cbfbda808837542ed7f8008d82cc4bf36%7C031a550af1f34b629c643ef02c7798a5%7C0%7C0%7C637308570825791834&sdata=HBNIvJTQ5qDfH88uBY0CTUdOLm9anFdk4Cc9D1tZWEs%3D&reserved=0 and 2) a more comprehensive 45-day report (currently under development and the focus of this survey).
