NEW ACRB FINALISTS MEET THE PUBLIC
TOMORROW: TUES. 6/26 @ 6:30 PM, Atlanta City Hall, 2nd Floor
Last week, we shared that both ACRB Investigator Sheena Robertson and former New Orleans Deputy Police Monitor Holly Wiseman were repeat finalists for ACRB Executive Director. One ACRB member reported that the board was unable to settle on three finalists and instead voted to present four to the public (because Wiseman and another candidate were tied). By the looks of it, that is no longer the case. Here are the three finalists, according to the ACRB website:
RICHARD A. RASMUSSEN of Sandy, Utah
Administrator with the Salt Lake City Civilian Review Board; Deputy Director Emer. Ops, SLC; Supervisor Special Agent, FBI; Special Agent, FBI; AF Officer; Investigative Skills Expert; Military Service, Bachelor of Science Degree.
SAMUEL L. REID, II of Minneapolis, Minnesota
Assistant Director, Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights, Minneapolis Civilian Police Review Authority (CRA); Manager, Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights; Minneapolis Civilian Police Review Authority; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Attorney; Juris Doctor 2002; Masters of Business Administration 2002.
VICTORIA A. URBI of Antioch, California
Former Police Review Commission Officer, Berkeley, California; Investigator, Citizens’ Police Review Board (CPRB), Oakland, California; Interim Civil Rights Officer; California Western School of Law, Juris Doctor 1999; Speaker and Trainer on Civilian Oversight.

*Make a decision about which ACRB board members you trust, and which ones you believe are nothing more than puppets for the police union and oversight opposition!
*What is oversight like in Berkeley? Salt Lake City? Minneapolis?
*Voice your concerns to the ACRB about how independence and transparency impact their credibility with our communities!
