Ferguson Update

  • On Thursday, the Justice Department and the city of Ferguson, Missouri, jointly filed an agreement resolving the United States’ pending lawsuit against Ferguson.  The court-enforceable decree, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, aims to remedy the unconstitutional law enforcement conduct that the Justice Department found during its civil pattern-or-practice investigation into the Ferguson law enforcement system.
     
  • Under the agreement, Ferguson will implement reforms to bring about constitutional and effective policing, promote officer and public safety, ensure fundamental fairness and equal treatment regardless of race in the municipal court and foster greater trust between police officers and the communities they serve.
