The White House will create a database to track the excessive use of violence by the police

June 16, 2020

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, will sign an executive regulation this Tuesday that will establish a database to track the excessive use of force by the US police.

The order, which the US executive is still finalizing, will also establish a national law enforcement certification system, as reported by the CNN television station, which cites a source familiar with the text.

Key provisions in the draft include guidelines that aim to promote higher standards among law enforcement agencies, but leave the United States Congress with the opportunity to implement more sensible police reform.

According to the medium mentioned above, legislators would have to carry out the most arduous work in this regard. For his part, Trump did not participate in the drafting of the executive ordinance that arose in Minneapolis after the wave of outrage following the death of Afro-American citizen George Floyd.
