Senior Justice Department officials concluded a two-day visit to Ferguson, Missouri, but did not give updates Friday evening on the series of federal investigations into possible race problems at local law enforcement agencies.

The department leaders met with officials from the Ferguson city government, Ferguson Police Department, and local FBI, U.S. Attorney, and Justice Department Civil Rights Division offices, according to agency spokeswoman Dena Iverson.

Among the delegation that went were Molly Moran, acting assistant attorney general for civil rights; Mark Kappelhoff, deputy assistant attorney general; and Ronald Davis, director of the Community Oriented Policing Service (COPS).

Ms. Iverson said “there will be additional opportunities for community members to meet with Civil Rights Division staff” to discuss the investigations into the Aug. 9 shooting death of an black teenager by a white police officer.
