President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order targeting police reforms Tuesday.
CNN reports 'a source familiar with the matter' says the order is expected to create a national certification system for law enforcement - along with a database tracking excessive use of force.
Trump, speaking to reporters at a White House roundtable event Monday afternoon, said he believed the order would be “pretty comprehensive.”
“Basically, we’re going to be talking about things that we’ve been watching and seeing for the last month, and we’re going to have some solutions, some good solutions,” Trump said without providing further details.
CNN describes the reforms as "modest;" reporting that a "source briefed on the text of the order said it is relatively muted" as compared to the types of reform being discussed by both sides in Congress.
The executive action comes as lawmakers of both parties work on their own legislative proposals to reform the police – an issue that became a central focus in recent weeks, following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
