APD to discuss "diversity training" at meeting tonight

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 5:06 PM

Now that the lawsuits have been settled, the investigations have been closed and the involved officers have been disciplined (well, for the most part), it's time for the Atlanta Police Department to show the community how it has improved since the 2009 raid of the Atlanta Eagle.

Besides revising several unconstitutional standard operating procedures, the APD was required by a Federal judge to provide LGBT sensitivity training for its officers. Tonight, at a meeting hosted by the department's outside LGBT advisory board, LGBT liaisons Pat Powell and Brian Sharp are slated to update the community on what that training involved.

Attorney Dan Grossman, who represented Eagle patrons and owners in their lawsuit against the city, will also be there to discuss and answer questions about the results of the city's court-mandated investigation into the raid.

The meeting's set for 7 p.m. in the sanctuary of Saint Mark Church, 781 Peachtree Street in Midtown.
