WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Mike Braun released the following statement in support of President Trump’s Executive Order on Safe Policing for Safe Communities.

“With this executive order, President Trump is taking a strong lead on progress toward more safe policing for all Americans,” said Senator Mike Braun. “This order includes results-focused actions to reform police practices, such as DOJ-certified independent organizations to accredit police departments on de-escalation tactics and use of force, an information sharing system to track and share data on incidents of excessive force, and a ban on chokeholds when an officer’s life is not in immediate danger that I have advocated for.”
