President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday on police reform that bans chokeholds “unless an officer’s life is at risk,” increases federal oversight of police departments and encourages departments to move towards better practices on use of force, though the order falls short of what activists are pushing for and ties its mandates to incentives.

Under the order, the federal government will require police departments to ban chokeholds, the police maneuver used by the Derek Chauvin in the killing of George Floyd, to receive certification that will allow them to access federal grants.

It will also create a database to track police officers with several misconduct violations and push for departments to involve mental healthcare workers on calls dealing with homelessness, mental illness and addiction.
