in Statewide/Top Headlines by

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is speaking about law enforcement issues at a Miami school and at a discussion with community leaders in the city.

Lynch is set to appear Friday morning at a town hall meeting at Miami’s Booker T. Washington High School with students and local law enforcement officials. After that, she holds a roundtable on policing at Miami-Dade College, followed by a news conference at the Freedom Tower.

The attorney general is visiting Miami and five other cities as part of an initiative to improve trust, cooperation and public safety between law enforcement and local citizens.

The initiative comes amid a national debate about police use of force and tactics following high-profile police shootings of unarmed young men in such places as Ferguson, Missouri, and Cleveland.
