President Signs Police Accountability Order

Creates registry and use-of-force guidelines and more. 

President Joe Biden issued a new executive order on police accountability on the second anniversary of the death of George Floyd. The order directs federal law enforcement agencies to rethink and revise their policies for use of force and create a national registry to track law enforcement officers whose positions are terminated due to misconduct. 

In addition, the president’s order will provide law enforcement agencies guidance on how to screen their officers for inherent bias, including white supremacist views. The order will provide resources for increased collection of data on use-of-force incidents. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they attempt to reform policing via executive action. 
  • For federal, state, and local law enforcement officers as they serve and protect in the wake of efforts to defund the police. 
  • For state and community leaders as they assess the relationship between citizens and law enforcement.
