Demanding Oversight from Justice Act of 2017

This bill amends the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 to require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to seek a civil action to stop law enforcement officials responsible for the administration of juvenile justice from engaging in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of their statutory or constitutional rights when DOJ has reasonable cause to believe such conduct has occurred.

The bill requires DOJ to publish an annual report describing complaints received about unlawful law enforcement conduct and specified information, including an explanation of why DOJ did not initiate an investigation or civil action.
