CINCINNATI (AP) — The nation’s top law enforcement official will be in Cincinnati to begin a national tour highlighting collaborative programs and policing practices designed to improve public safety and strengthen police-community relations.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch will meet Tuesday with Cincinnati’s mayor, its police chief and others at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Lynch also planned to meet with officers and visit a school where Cincinnati police help mentor children.

The Justice Department says the tour is intended to promote $163 million in grants available 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.

Other cities to be included in the tour will be announced Tuesday.
