DOJ releases report on St. Louis County Police

(KTRS) – The Department of Justice issued their final report on the response to unrest in the wake of Michael Brown’s shooting death.

The DOJ says the St. Louis County police need to strengthen policies for handling protests and demonstrations, improve training on diversity and community policing, and do a better job of hiring and promoting minorities and women.

This is the third in a series of reports released by federal officials.

Some of the reports findings:

  • Women are underrepresented in all ranks of the police force
  • County police do not include traffic stop data in annual report that is released to the public
  • County officers are still coping with the emotional effects of Ferguson protests and unrest
  • The department’s attempts to engage the public fall flat
