A federal investigation is criticizing tactics used by the Harvey Police Department but says the department has not engaged in illegal brutality.

The Justice Department began investigating the Harvey Police Department in 2007.

Officials say while the department did not engage in illegal behavior, it did "tacitly endorse heavy-handed use of force" and failed to keep proper records of officer firearms training.
