Citizens Review Board met to discuss complaints against Aiken city police

August 18, 2017 GMT

The Aiken Citizens Review Board met Thursday evening for their third meeting at the Municipal Building in downtown Aiken.

The board was created in April 2016 as part of a response to public revelations regarding a federal lawsuit alleging an Aiken County man was subjected to an illegal roadside cavity search in 2014.

Shortly into Thursday’s meeting, the group went into executive session discussing “the employment, appointment, compensation, promotion, demotion, discipline, or release of an employee.”

The executive session is for the board to specifically review individual complaints against Aiken Department of Public Safety officers, according to the agenda.

The group does not publicly discuss the cases.

As of July, the group had closed six cases involving complaints against the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

The next Citizens Review Board meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, in room 204 of the Aiken Municipal Building.
