2017 Civil Rights/Color of Law Symposium

October 31, 2017
FBI Seal

In light of recent events, use of force by law enforcement has received increasing scrutiny by the public, the media, and law enforcement agencies across the U.S. In response, the FBI and DOJ developed this Federal Color of Law Investigations course to educate law enforcement agencies and communities on the FBI’s role in investigating violations under the federal Color of Law statutes.

The FBI and DOJ have jointly presented this course to thousands across the country since 2014 with the aim of dispelling misconceptions and increasing partnership. We have another event taking place soon right here in Newark!
