Trump Signs Executive Order On Police Reform: "Reducing Crime And Raising Standards Are Not Opposite Goals"


President Trump will sign an executive order Tuesday at noon outlining his plan to reform policing in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

Early reports about Trump's order discuss a federal database of police misconduct and ways to incentivize local law enforcement to rely more on social workers and mental health professionals on calls dealing with homelessness, mental illness and addiction.

"Both public safety and public trust are crucial to the law enforcement mission," the White House said in a tweet Monday night. "Tomorrow’s Executive Order will uphold clear and high policing standards, promote accountability in law enforcement, and help equip police officers for constructive community engagement."
