NYPD Accused of Discrimination in Intelligence Division
Black detectives in the New York City Police Department's Intelligence Division filed a federal complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging racial discrimination in NYPD hiring and promotion practices. The New York Civil Liberties Union filed the report last month on behalf of complainants, who accuse the Intelligence Division of employing a "secretive and standardless promotions policy" that promotes white officers ahead of better-qualified African-American officers.

The complaint specifically targets the City of New York, NYPD Deputy Commissioner David Cohen and Assistant Chief Thomas Galati. Click here
