Today the Justice Department announced they are investigating the Seattle Police Department for patterns or practices of racial discrimination.  This follows an action against Dayton, Ohio’s police Department when it forced them to accept as police officers black candidates who failed the entrance exams.  DOJ is doing the same to the New York City Fire Department.  The investigation comes complete with custom email addresses for people to send tips (at least that is the intended use): community.seattle@usdoj.gov.  Or, “if you have any comments or concerns” a phone number is also provided: 855-203-4479.
