Border sheriffs react to DOJ plan to release up to 2,000 criminal illegal aliens
Breitbart
Border sheriffs are responding to a report that the U.S. Department of Justice is set to engage in the largest one-time release of federal prisoners. Six thousand inmates will receive early release, 2,000 of which are "foreign citizens" who officials claim "will be quickly deported." The release is set to occur between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2.

"Law enforcement should always be concerned when this number of criminals will be released." said Jackson County, Texas, Sheriff A.J. "Andy" Louderback, who also serves as legislative director of the Sheriffs' Association of Texas. "I am also concerned that although the federal government claims they will be deported, as many as 2,000 illegal aliens could be released into our communities."

By Archita Datta Majumdar
In a recent move, Ohio's state law enforcement board announced standards for the use of deadly force by police. The mandate is the first of its kind in the state and a new concept for many other states as well. The new standards will limit the use for deadly force to defend either people from serious injury or death or officers in an extreme situation. Consistent with national and international policies on force, these rules will be the right step to improve relations between police and communities.

Do body cameras affect how police interact with the public?
Journalist's Resource
Police use of force has been heavily scrutinized for more than a year after fatal police encounters with unarmed black men around the U.S. The increased attention has renewed calls for law enforcement officers to wear video cameras while on duty. Supporters say the devices are needed to provide transparency, build public trust and provide evidence against false complaints. But as more law enforcement agencies begin using them, questions emerge as to when they should be turned on and off and how much footage should be made available to the public.
