Elected officials and advocacy groups from cities across the country are calling for the pace of police investigation announcements by the Justice Department to increase.

Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah asked the Justice Department on Friday to step in to investigate the Mount Vernon Police Department after her office’s criminal investigation found “disturbing allegations of patterns of inappropriate and potentially unlawful conduct by several former and current members of the police department. ”

Ginther said in a letter that he is inviting the Justice Department to issue findings that evaluate the police department’s current reform efforts, assess its operations, offer remedies to address deficiencies and “provide an environment that fosters trust between the Division of Police and the residents of the City of Columbus. ”

During Garland’s announcements for the Louisville and Minneapolis police departments, he said the designated prosecutors will connect with members of the community for insight.
