Positive changes are taking place at a controversial Brooklyn jail, according to a report released Saturday by the Justice Department.
The Metropolitan Detention Center had been under scrutiny after a previous investigation found guards abused dozens of people who were detained there, in the wake of 9/11.
The report says prison officials have done well training guards in ways to avoid using force, but the report also says more reforms are still needed.
