During remarks to law enforcement officers at the Justice Department, President Clinton spoke on efforts to reduce crime and violence in the nation. The President focused on the chief principles of the Crime Bill. These include: providing funding for another 100,000 police officers over 5 years for community policing; creating a “three strikes and you’re out” law; encouraging states and localities to find alternative punishments, such as boot camps, for first-time nonviolent offenders; and enacting a crime prevention strategy aimed at making schools safe, drug-free, and free of violence. close
