Police in Ferguson will no longer be allowed to wear bracelets in support of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, reports NPR.

The shooting in August unleashed days of unrest on the streets of Ferguson, Mo.

In a letter released on Friday, the Justice Department says Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson has agreed that his police officers and any other officers brought in to patrol Ferguson will be banned from wearing "I am Darren Wilson" bracelets.

The Justice Department said it received complaints from Ferguson residents who felt offended by the accessory.
