President Trump will a sign a pair of police-related bills Friday, including one that encourages law enforcement agencies to hire veterans, the White House said.
Trump plans to sign the American Law Enforcement Heroes Act of 2017 and the Public Safety Officers Benefits Improvement Act of 2017 on Friday afternoon, a White House aide told the Washington Examiner.
The House and Senate passed the Heroes Act last month, which authorizes law enforcement grantees of the Justice Department's community policing COPS program to use funds to hire veterans.
Congress also passed the Benefits Act last month, which aims to decrease the waiting time before family members of public safety officers killed in the line duty receive survivor benefits.
Trump is scheduled to sign the bills in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House on Friday.
