White House Places Hold on Police Commission

Administration shifts focus to congressional cooperation. 

The White House recently announced that it would be putting a newly planned police oversight commission on hold. The president’s administration has been working with civil rights leaders to determine the best form of the commission. As a result of those talks, it determined that it would be better to prioritize Congressional efforts to pass police reform laws rather than create a commission at this time. 

White House Domestic Policy Adviser Susan Rice stated, “Based on close, respectful consultation with partners in the civil rights community, the administration made the considered judgment that a police commission, at this time, would not be the most effective way to deliver on our top priority in this area.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would guide the nation’s elected officials in the most effective reforms for law enforcement.
  • For Adviser Rice to seek God’s guidance in offering recommendations to the president on domestic policy. 
  • For the president and his administration to understand the needs of Americans as policies are implemented.
