Source Title: promoting reform? Foreign media: Biden plans to impose new policies to restrict police access to military equipment
According to a person familiar with the situation and the contents of a planning document, US President Biden will take administrative measures as early as January 26 local time to reduce the use of private prisons and impose new restrictions on the acquisition of military equipment by law enforcement agencies.
According to the report, the purpose of the above action is to cancel the controversial policies of former president Trump’s term, promote criminal justice reform, and solve the problem of racial injustice in the United States.
Representatives from the White House and the U.S. Department of justice have yet to respond to requests for comment, Reuters said.
According to the planning document provided by the White House to congressional Democrats, the Biden administration will resume some policies of the US Department of justice during the administration of former President Barack Obama, the report said.
