NEW HAVEN, Connecticut — FBI Director James Comey says he spoke with local police chiefs during a visit to Connecticut about how law enforcement can participate better in the conversation about race and policing.

Comey said he wanted to keep details private but it was a productive and thoughtful conversation.

Comey spoke with reporters Tuesday as he made his second visit to the New Haven field office since becoming director.

He said he also heard from local chiefs that they feel law enforcement relationships have improved since a change in leadership for the Connecticut field office two years ago.

The director is a former attorney for Bridgewater Associates, a Westport-based hedge fund, and he still considers Connecticut home. He has been the FBI's director for nearly two years.
