The federal government has an obligation to ensure that state law enforcement agencies put their officers and cadets through sensitivity training, and that special prosecutors are appointed to investigate police officers. Making grant funding conditional on putting these changes into effect will increase compliance by states and cities that need funding.
Requiring states to appoint an independent prosecutor for investigations involving police officers or requiring cops to undergo sensitivity training will not significantly improve relations between law enforcement and their communities. Reducing the amount of grant funding that goes to state and local governments will have a negative impact on public.
