Government Should Focus Its Resources On Helping Police Combat Crime: US Attorney General


Jeff Sessions

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the federal government should stop spending money to sue local police departments. In a speech to the National Association of Attorney Generals, Sessions stated that “the government should focus its resources on helping police combat crime.” Sessions announced the formation of a Justice Department task force to look at current practice deficiencies and propose new legislation to fight crime.

Since 2015, violent crimes have increased by 3.9%; Sessions stated his commitment to show local police that they have his "steadfast support" after the previous administration spent considerable resources targeting police departments it deemed were using excessive force or targeting minorities.
