CT Police Department Promises To Reform Treatment of Latinos

The agreement, which mandates wide-ranging reforms of the East Haven Police Department, resolves allegations by the U.S. Justice Department’s civil rights division that officers regularly used excessive force and retaliated against those who witnessed police misconduct or criticized officers.
