White House Announces First-year Progress in Implementing EO on Accountable Policing

New title

On May 25, 2023, the White House announced a number of actions taken in response to the historic Executive Order on Advancing Effective, Accountable Policing and Criminal Justice Practices to Enhance Public Trust and Public Safety (EO 14074), which had been released one year earlier and went into effect on the second anniversary of the death of George Floyd (see sidebar).

The White House reported that agencies across the federal government have made significant progress in implementing the requirements of the EO in the year since its release, with the goal of strengthening public trust and public safety. In this process, agencies engaged directly with stakeholders, including law enforcement associations, civil rights groups, labor organizations, technical experts and families impacted by police violence.

The following resources are available on concrete actions taken to promote accountability, raise standards, support state, tribal, local, and territorial law enforcement, strengthen data collection and technology, and more:

EO 14074 requires federal law enforcement agencies to:
  • ban chokeholds;
  • restrict no-knock warrants;
  • mandate the use of body-worn cameras;
  • implement stronger use-of-force policies, including with the duty to intervene and duty to render medical aid;
  • provide de-escalation training; submit use-of-force data to the FBI’s Use-of-Force Data Collection;
  • submit officer misconduct records into a new national accountability database; and
  • restrict the sale or transfer of military equipment to local law enforcement agencies, among other things.
The EO also directs the use of federal tools—such as guidance on best practices, technical assistance, and grant-making—to support similar reforms within state, Tribal, local, and territorial (STLT) law enforcement agencies.
