Obama is calling for a three-year, $263 million spending package that would fund 50,000 new body cameras for police officers. That funding request must be approved by Congress.

The president will also issue an executive order calling on law enforcement agencies to better track the surplus, military-style weapons they receive from the government and bolster training for those using the the equipment.

Still, critics have accused Obama of not doing enough to address protesters’ concerns in the wake of a grand jury opting not to indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
