In his weekly radio address, President Clinton focused on the campaign to fight crime and violence. Recalling his pledge to place 100,000 more police officers on the streets, he noted that, thus far, the Administration has awarded funds for police departments across America to hire over 16,000 new officers. The president warned against Republican legislation that would replace the initiative guaranteed to put 100,000 police on the street with a block grant program that has no guarantees. “I will veto any effort to repeal or undermine the 100,000 police commitment, period,” he emphasized. The president also discussed his 1994 Drug Control Strategy, which involves cutting off drugs at the source, stiffer punishment for drug dealers, more education and prevention, and more treatment. He noted that the most important part of the strategy will be to boost efforts to educate young people about the dangers and penalties of drug use. close
