It's about time. President Trump signed three executive orders Thursday dedicated to standing behind the police officers who risk their lives every day to protect us in our communities, reduce crime, and end drug cartel violence. The executive orders were signed after Attorney General Jeff Sessions swearing in. The first executive order directs the newly installed attorney general to develop a strategy for more effectively prosecuting people who commit violence against members of law enforcement, Spicer said, referring to the Presidential Executive Order on Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers.
Spicer called it imperative that federal, state and local law enforcement agencies better coordinate and share information across jurisdiction to better serve and protect our communities. This order will start the important work of doing just that - instituting a holistic approach that involves the whole of government, he explained. It also directs the Department of Justice to work with other federal agencies to come up with ways to further reduce violence against law enforcement and orders a hard look at how the Department of Justice and other agencies uses their law enforcement grants, he said.
