Sarno Meets With New US Attorney On Civil Suit

Springfield  officials met with U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts  Andrew Lelling on Friday to discuss the opening of a federal  investigation into the former Narcotics Unit of the Springfield  Police Department.  

The investigation is  civil in nature and will look into whether the unit engaged in a pattern  or practice of using excessive force.  

The Narcotics Unit was in the  spotlight in 2016 when video was publicized showing a detective, Gregg  Bigda, threatening to kill a teen who was arrested for stealing an  undercover police car.
