James Queally


James Queally writes about crime and policing in Southern California and the Bay Area, focusing on use-of-force policy, hate crimes and police culture. Since coming to The Times he has also traveled to Ferguson, Mo. and Cleveland to cover large-scale protests involving police use-of-force and the 2016 election. A Brooklyn native, he came to The Times in 2014 after covering crime and police news for the Star-Ledger in New Jersey. In that time he profiled Frank Lucas, the drug kingpin who inspired the film “American Gangster,” and wrote a series of stories that revealed how the state’s largest police departments failed to solve thousands of nonfatal shootings, which led to policy changes.
