The Justice Department announced Tuesday that it's investigating allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault around Missoula, Montana, including the University of Montana.
According to the Justice Department, "This investigation will focus on allegations that [the Montana agencies] are failing to adequately investigate and prosecute alleged sexual assaults against women in Missoula."
Just as a point of reference, the DoJ notes that this isn't the first time it's investigated something like this; you may be familiar with the Justice Department for its investigation into the office of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for allegedly bungling sex crimes, as well.
"The department previously found a pattern or practice of gender discrimination in the New Orleans Police Department," the DoJ says. "Similarly, the department found problems of significant concern involving the handling of sex crimes in both the Puerto Rico Police Department and the Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff's Office."
