Atlanta Police Chief George Turner is expected to meet with the Atlanta Citizens Review Board at noon Wednesday. The board, which investigates citizen complaints against officers, called the meeting to address his failure to respond to its recommendations on discipline.
Board executive director Cristina Beamud said Turner volunteered to meet with the board, which voted earlier this month to subpoena him. On Tuesday, the chief also responded to the board reports, one which had awaited his response since April, Beamud said.
The Atlanta City Council created the board after vast police misconduct was uncovered after officers killed an elderly woman in an illegal raid. It gave the chief 30 days to support or reject the recommendation.
