Griffith Statement on President Trump’s Policing Executive Order

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today issued the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order on safe policing:

“President Trump’s executive order on policing takes the right approach. It will encourage transparency, best practices, and accountability.

“I look forward to working with the Trump Administration and my colleagues in Congress on further reforms. We must instill confidence in all citizens that their civil rights will be protected, while assuring police officers, the great majority of whom do their jobs with dedication and responsibility, that they are supported in carrying out their vital work.”
