Reported in Justice Dept. Will Form Partnerships With 12 Cities to Crack Down on Violent Crime (print headline).  (The New York Times, 6/20/2017)
Don't expect any federal money with this partnership, Mr. Rallings.  Under the program — the Trump administration’s latest move in prioritizing a reduction in violent crime — advisers and consultants will help local law enforcement officials develop strategies to combat violent crime. The cities will not receive funding as part of the initiative, a Justice Department spokesman said.
