Dec. 16, 2017
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to discuss the eradication of violent crime during an appearance Monday in Toledo.
The Blade reports the visit was announced Friday night by the U.S. Department of Justice. Sessions earlier on Friday discussed the DOJ's crime-fighting efforts at a news conference in Washington.
He's scheduled to speak at 3:10 p.m. at the U.S. Attorney's Office in downtown Toledo.
Sessions said in September that an increase in violent crime the last several years is a trend that "threatens to erode progress" in making communities safer.
The Justice Department in June announced "significant assistance" for Toledo and 11 other cities to fight crime through a new National Public Safety Partnership
