Citizen Board at odds with Police Chief

The Atlanta Citizen Review Board is on a collision course with the Atlanta police chief -- again.

The board voted Thursday to subpoena Chief George Turner because it says he is violating the  city law by not responding  in 30 days to its recommendations regarding citizen complaints about officers.

Turner, who had pledged to cooperate before being appointed chief, said the board refuses to recognize he can't respond to its investigations if the police are still investigating the officer.

The City Council created the board in 2007 after police killed a woman in a botched narcotics raid. The FBI investigation showed a pattern of wrong doing  by the narcotics unit. The board contended former chief Richard Pennington undermined it by not cooperating.
