Law enforcement, activists to meet with Obama at White House


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will quickly return to the delicate balancing act of supporting law enforcement while addressing concerns of bias from some of the communities they serve.

Obama is meeting Wednesday with police officers at the White House. It’s the second such meeting this week and will be expanded to include mayors, academics and civil rights activists.

Obama says on Facebook that “we’ll share solutions from communities that have already found ways to build trust and reduce disparities.”

Obama attended a memorial service in Dallas Tuesday for five police officers killed in the line of duty. He said that going forward he wants to hear from more Americans about how to address “these challenges together as one nation.”
