WARREN -- U.S. Justice Department officials are promising to return to the city for a third visit, according to the chief executive officer of the Warren-Trumbull Urban League.

Tom Conley, CEO of the Warren-Trumbull Urban League, said he and about a half dozen residents met the federal officials Tuesday at his office.

"Things went very well, and they told me they are returning and would like to meet with more residents," Conley said.

Conley declined to state what he or the others discussed with the officials.

"They were very pleased with the response they have been receiving and want to talk to anyone else that have had problems with the department," Conley said.

Justice Department officials, who began investigating the department in January, spent three days here last month. At that time, they met with current and former city officials and some members of the police department.

No specifics

After the last visit, Mayor Michael O'Brien said officials told him the city needs to work on the citizen complaint system, but he declined to give specifics.

The Justice Department also sent a request to the city last week asking for additional records. The request includes pictures of all the city police officers and additional internal affair reports.

Police Chief John Mandopoulos did not return telephone calls seeking comment.

Eric Holland, spokesman for the Justice Department, could not be reached to comment.
