Black Officers Claim Hiring Discrimination In Syracuse

February 29, 2012  |

The suit also alleges that the city is not complying with a 1980 federal consent decree that sets out goals to have black officers make up 10 percent of each rank and 25 percent of each recruit class, reports the Post-Standard.
