DOJ Finds Louisiana Police Violate Rights

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday issued its finding into the 42 USC Section 14141 investigation of two law enforcement agencies in Louisiana concluding that both engage in a "pattern or practice" of unconstitutional conduct.

The Ville Platte Police Department and Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office both were found to routinely arrest and hold in jail persons without either an arrest warrant or probable cause to support the arrests.

DOJ also found that both departments lacked a basic understanding of when lawful arrests could be made and lacked training and supervision to the extent that civil rights were violated on a broad scale.
