CINCINNATI (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch will visit Cincinnati to start a national tour promoting community policing and $163 million in grant money available to advance policing recommendations by a national task force.

She’ll meet with city officials, including Cincinnati’s mayor and police chief, on Tuesday at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. She’ll also meet with officers and visit a school where Cincinnati police help mentor children.

The Justice Department says the national tour will highlight collaborative programs and policing practices designed to advance public safety, strengthen police-community relations and foster mutual trust and respect.

The department says the tour and grants are intended to build on President Barack Obama’s commitment to work with law enforcement and others to implement recommendations from the 21st Century Policing Task Force report.
