Report highlights 'deficiencies' at Philadelphia police

Philadelphia’s police is riddled with “serious deficiencies” in its use of deadly force, the US Justice Department said Monday, amid a national debate about relations between law enforcement and African Americans. The damning findings come in a report prompted by an increase in shootings involving police officers in 2013 in the city. Among the report’s key recommendations was better transparency to improve relations between Philadelphia police and minority communities. The Department of Justice examined 394 shootings involving police between 2007 and 2014 in Philadelphia: nearly 60 percent of police officers involved were white and of those shot 81 percent were black.
