WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has come out with new guidance emphasizing that investigations must be free from bias involving race and gender or against people with disabilities. Anti-profiling rules have also been expanded to include thousands more people who work in the justice system. The guidelines obtained by The Associated Press are the first updates in nearly a decade and now cover thousands more people than before, including prosecutors, lawyers, analysts and contractors.
