The Department of Justice has launched a probe of the Newark (N.J.) Police Department to address allegations that the department used excessive force.

The announcement comes, as newly elected Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel announced Newark Police Director Garry McCarthy as his pick to lead the department.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a 96-page petition accusing Newark of spotty internal affairs investigations and rampant misconduct in September.
