Trump Justice Department Killed Police Reform Programs That Could Have Helped Minneapolis

Snip

"Since President Donald Trump took office, his appointees at the Justice Department have all but eliminated the federal governmentís police reform work.

The Civil Rights Divisionís police practices group has shrunk by half, and it hasnít opened any major pattern-or-practice investigations that could rein in police departments that regularly violate constitutional rights. "

1. What was it called when police depts had to undergo a DoJ evaluation and reform project?

I was thinking about that this morning, remembering that Trump or Sessions said they wouldn't be doing that.
