President Plans Orders Restricting Law Enforcement

Actions are part of acknowledging Black History Month. 

President Biden plans to roll out executive actions on police reform in February in acknowledgment of Black History Month.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said “We’re very supporting of the efforts to negotiate police reform on a bipartisan level. Obviously, that didn’t move forward as we would have hoped.” She said creating a policing executive order is a “substantive process,” which is “ongoing.” She would not give a timeline but said, “It’s a reflection of the President’s commitment to delivering on his promises.” 

According to polling data, most black Americans support a police presence in their communities. A Pew Research poll shows that support has grown among black Americans for increased policing.

Law enforcement organizations are expressing concern and skepticism of the president’s reported plan, saying it is “not sustainable” as a means of achieving long-term change. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his advisers as they weigh the police reform executive actions the president plans to take. 
  • For state, local, and community leaders as they address the relationship between citizens and law enforcement. 
  • For federal and state law enforcement officers as they seek to fulfill their duties with decreased government support.
