Trump Signs Executive Order Creating Incentives for Police Departments

Trump Signs Executive Order Creating Incentives for Police Departments President Donald Trump signed the order on Tuesday, which will create a database to track police misconduct.

The administrationโ€™s order rejects nationwide calls to โ€œdefund the police,โ€ which would reallocate police budgets to other departments.

Police departments will instead receive federal grant money for updating their standards on training and credentialing.

The order will also give departments incentives for utilizing professional workers, such as social workers, for nonviolent issues.

The action comes as lawmakers push for police reform in light of the killing of George Floyd while in police custody.
