“Congress cannot afford to let this moment pass. There is room for bipartisan agreement on many critical issues of policing reform,” said Joshua Bolten, president and CEO of Business Roundtable.
In a statement from the group, CEOs say they urge bipartisan consensus around community engagement, data collection and transparency, accountability, minimum national policing standards and training.
During the Independence Day recess, Business Roundtable says it will continue direct engagement with members of Congress and civil rights, community and law enforcement leaders. Business Roundtable will also run a nationwide radio and digital ad campaign calling for urgent action on policing reform.
