In the face of drawn-out demonstration US President Donald Trump has finally signed an executive order to reform police operations. He signed the order on Tuesday (June 16). However, Trump has rejected calls for the closure or abolition of police funding.


Earlier at local time on Monday (June 15), Trump was expected to sign the executive order for reforming the U.S. police department. The Trump administration said in a statement that the reforms were aimed at improving the skills, overall development and cruelty of the police officers while preventing any violence.


According to the Voice of America, the reforms include increasing police allocations or grants to increase the prudence of the police and the Co-Response Service so that the police can acquire the skills to assist in various activities in the local community. This will include the development of mental health or the solution of drug problems. A database of complaints against police officers will also be created.


According to the news media, the country's Congress has proposed major reforms in the police department. A hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on police reform was held on Tuesday. The Republican-majority Senate Chamber is debating a proposal to reform the police department, which would include chokehold or police led suffocation and the use of body cameras.


Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, this is a very important proposal for law-enforcement reform.


Meanwhile, minority Democrat leader Chuck Schumer said no Republican initiative goes too far. But now is the time to take firm action and change this reform.


The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives could hold police reform any time this month. So that it is much easier for citizens to file lawsuits against police officers.


However, the White House has said it will not allow President Trump to block legislation that would limit the number of cases against government employees.
