DHS Announces Law Enforcement Council

The purpose of the council is to promote “best practices” in policing.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the creation of a new council to “promote best practices” in law enforcement. The Law Enforcement Coordination Council would be its “first unified law enforcement coordination body,” he said.

They will conduct comprehensive reviews to ensure “fair, equitable and impartial policing,” according to a department press release. More specifically, the council’s responsibilities will include evaluating new challenges and potential policy changes while also coordinating the distribution of information and encouraging best practices, DHS said.

“The Law Enforcement Coordination Council will better enable the Department to combat current and future threats to our country, while ensuring the safety of both our law enforcement personnel and the diverse communities we serve,” Secretary Mayorkas stated.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the new council to provide law enforcement with support and encouragement as they review policing policies.
  • For federal, state, and local law enforcement officers as police reforms are being developed.
