Congresswoman Kelly Condemns Decision to Gut COPS program

Sep 18, 2017
Press Release

Matteson, IL - Congresswoman Kelly released this statement concerning President Trump's reckless decision to gut the DOJ's COPS program:

"This decision directly endangers our communities and public safety by starving our law enforcement of vital resources and information.

At a time when community trust in law enforcement is extremely low, the President’s reckless decision will make this situation worse.

We know that building strong community-police relations improve public safety and give minority communities a voice in how their communities are policed.

Quite simply, this decision is a slap in the face to all communities and law enforcement."
