President Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order on police reform, titled “Safe Policing for Safe Communities,” amid growing calls from weeks of protests across the nation for action to reform the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
The order consists of three key components — a national database to track police history of misconduct to prevent those officers from easily moving between different departments, ban the use of chokeholds except when an officer life is in danger, instructs the Justice Department to allocate discretionary grant funding to police departments that are certified by federally-approved bodies in police training and de-escalation techniques, incentivize officer training and provide more resources for co-responders to include social workers and individuals trained in mental health issues to help officers respond to non-violent calls.
