In New York, a new report says the New York Police Department Intelligence Bureau frequently broke rules while surveilling Muslim American residents after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The report was issued by the Office of the Inspector General for the New York Police Department Tuesday.

It says the agency failed to offer information about the role of undercover cops and informants in intelligence gathering and let deadlines pass during investigations.

The Inspector General’s Office says the violations demonstrate the need for continued oversight of the NYPD.
