USCCB Calls for Better Police Formation and Accountability

Usccb Logo

In the wake of recent police brutality against African Americans, the USCCB has sent a letter to all members of the U.S. Congress to offer reflections and principles for police accountability and reform. In the letter, the bishops write: "We stand in the long tradition--from St. Augustine, to St. Thomas Aquinas, to Dr. Martin Luther King--that claims that the purpose of law and law enforcement is the promotion of justice." The "only solution to the challenges of this moment," is to follow the wise counsel of Pope St. Paul VI: "If you want peace, work for justice."
