BREAKING: A Formal Investigation Into The GRPD To Begin

An investigation by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights has been put into action to look into whether there is systemic discrimination by the Grand Rapids Police Department.

MDCR Director Agustin Arbulu said during the press conference this morning that “The number of complaints since March 28 represents nearly twice the number of complaints received prior to the listening sessions, While the number of complaints alone does not indicate discriminatory patterns or practices at play, we do believe — and I mean this — we do believe they warrant thorough investigation.”

The investigation would involve 23 of the 80 complaints received and is expected to take months to conclude.
