Request by St. Louis leaders to have police conduct at protests investigated goes to D.C.

The request by St. Louis leaders to have the U.S. attorney's office investigate police conduct at protests has been referred to the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that in a letter on Wednesday, Acting U.S. Attorney Carrie Costantin says the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division handles investigations that focus on officer discipline and training. It's not clear if the Justice Department will investigate St. Louis police.
