(WASHINGTON) — Attorney General Merrick Garland will announce Wednesday that the Justice Department is launching a “pattern or practice” investigation into the Minneapolis police department, looking at whether the department has a pattern or practice of discriminatory policing.
Garland is expected to announce the investigation during public remarks Wednesday morning a day after the guilty verdicts against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, convicted of murdering George Floyd.
A DOJ spokesman declined to comment on that matter.
