Mayor Bottoms signed legislation creating a Task Force to reimagine the use of the Atlanta City Detention Center into a vibrant services hub that will restore and strengthen the social and civic life of Atlanta’s communities which have been disproportionately harmed by our society’s history of over-incarceration and punishment. Click here to learn more about the legislation.
The Task Force will provide recommendations to the Mayor for proposed alternative uses of ACDC, including further steps that may be considered for the City to reduce criminal violations that are consistent with public safety. The Task Force will be comprised of representatives of local government and 25 citizens selected from nominations submitted by the public. We would especially like to include those who have been detained at ACDC in the Task Force, and encourage nominations from impacted communities.
