Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday ordered an extensive review of federal agreements with police forces nationwide to make sure they stood in line with the Trump administration's goal of promoting police officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime, the Hill reports. 

“The (Justice) Department will use its resources to effectively promote a peaceful and lawful society, where the civil rights of all persons are valued and protected,” he said in a memo first reported on by the Washington Post.

“The Deputy Attorney General and the Associate Attorney General are hereby directed to immediately review all Department activities – including collaborative investigations and prosecutions, grant making, technical assistance and training, compliance reviews, existing or contemplated consent decrees, and task force participation – in order to ensure that they fully and effectively promote the principles outlined above.”
