Holder: "What We See In Ferguson Is Not Restricted To Ferguson"


ATTY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER: What we see in Ferguson is not restricted to Ferguson. There are other communities around this country that have these same issues that have to be dealt with and we at the Justice Department are determined to do all we can to bridge those divides. We launched in September our initiative to provide training to law enforcement and communities on bias reduction and fairness, and we plan to have evidence-based strategies in five pilot sites around the country. This is all designed to bridge those gaps between law enforcement and the communities that they serve, these gaps, these divides exist beyond Ferguson. Our focus will be national in its scope to try to deal ultimately with these issues.
