This is interesting. The Department of Justice released a memorandum on the Comprehensive Strategy for Reducing Violent Crime. The problem is that the DOJ has little to do with violent crime that occurs in communities. The DOJ and it’s enforce arm the FBI very rarely is involved with neighborhood street crime (State crimes). When the DOJ is involved with crime at the State level. It is usually through a task force operation and that involves a partnership of officers from state police, county sheriffs, and c/t/v police. This leads me to say that the DOJ has little experience fighting local state level crime and are not in the best position to set strategy for a comprehensive plan to stop crime.
Anyways check out their memorandum and see what you think.
