Sean Goldstein, the Goldstein Law Group’s lead attorney, recently spoke with Rose Scott of WABE’s “Closer Look” about the creation of Gwinnett County’s first-ever police citizens advisory board.
Created in the aftermath of the deaths of Black residents like Ahmaud Arbery and Rayshard Brooks, the goal of the advisory board is to build stronger relationships between police officers and residents.
Sean Goldstein, who was appointed as the chairman of the advisory board, spoke to Scott about the board’s goals and what he hopes it can do for the people of Gwinnett County.
“We are here to represent the community to the police,” Goldstein told Scott. He said the board will not function as a citizens review board but will serve as a liaison between police and the community and make recommendations.
“What we will be doing is reviewing policy, reviewing training policy, training procedures,” Goldstein said.
