Residents in Fort Pierce are voicing their concerns with the police department directly to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The DOJ is holding a listening session at the Percy Peak Gymnasium in Ft. Pierce Wednesday at 6PM - the second  session in as many months.

The session provides a rare opportunity for the community speak directly to the DOJ about the problems they see - while discussing potential solutions.

This forum Wednesday is part of a 2 year reform plan for the department.

It comes in the wake of the controversial police involved shooting of Demarcus Semer last April.

The officers were cleared in the shooting - but many in the community still say they want justice.
