Ferguson leaders, DOJ officials to meet again
ST. LOUIS - Ferguson city leaders will meet with Justice Department officials in about two weeks and provide a plan for ways to improve the police department following a scathing report released this week.
Mayor James Knowles III told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that the goal is to work out an agreement for a plan forward. A specific meeting date has not been set.
Knowles says city leaders are still going over the report "line by line." Asked about Police Chief Tom Jackson, Knowles says he still leads the department, but the mayor declined to discuss Jackson's future.
The mayor says the three employees cited in the report for racist emails are no longer working for the city. He declined to say if they were fired or resigned.
