Criminal Justice Reform

For our system of justice to function properly, we must have faith that all law enforcement officers will exercise their exceptional authority responsibly and without prejudice. The convergence of discrimination and overuse of force, particularly in minority communities, has dealt a blow to many Americans’ faith in law enforcement.  

We must take a hard look at the policies of policing and address the shortcomings that have enabled these grievous incidents to occur. Until we can assure every American family that their sons and daughters will be treated equally and with dignity, we cannot hope to re-build the trust that must exist between law enforcement and our communities. 

Leading retailers urge Congress to take bipartisan action on meaningful reforms that get at the roots of these incidents and begin to rebuild trust in law enforcement. Retailers support reforms that properly address law enforcement’s use of force, including chokeholds and no-knock warrants.
