Attorneys will be joined by community activists to announce a formal investigation into the Howard County Police Department’s use of force against African Americans. Recent incidents of white Supremacist activity, overt racism, long-standing complaints of racial profiling, and unfair policing against African Americans and other allegations of Civil Rights violations have prompted the Black Lawyers for Justice investigation.

“Through litigation review and Freedom of Information Act and other legal measures, Black Lawyers for Justice will be reviewing citizen complaints, community complaints, personnel records, lawsuits, disciplinary records, and other evidence to determine if the discrimination that has been alleged is in fact correct. We expect the Chief of Police Lisa Myers and the County Executive Calvin B. Ball, and County Council to fully comply with our vigorous investigation.”
