Plans for the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center have already been greatly improved through extensive public input, primarily through the Community Stakeholder Advisory Committee. As that Committee’s work continues, Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens is also directing his Administration to expand its work with community members in Atlanta and DeKalb County to make key decisions regarding the future of the green space and Training Center. To that end, he is directing the establishment of the South River Forest and Public Safety Training Center Community Task Force.
Mayor Dickens is a leader who brings people together. As we move forward, he wants to ensure that we are doing so together, as one community.
A community-led initiative to turn the current city jail into a Center for Equity, realized through Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ transformational vision. It holds the potential to be a national model in the US, providing increased resources, wellness, and healing for the community.
