FILE - In this Oct. 21, 2013 file photo, Chief of Police Michael Kehoe, of Newtown, Conn., listens as he is acknowledged during the Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Kehoe led the response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School killings in 2012. In a report released Wednesday, May 25, 2016, by the U.S. Department of Justice Department and the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Kehoe said that many police chiefs are not prepared to deal effectively with the aftermath of such events, and many are unaware of the impact those events will have on their communities and officers. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A new federal report says police chiefs and sheriffs across the country should put mental health programs in place for their officers as soon as possible to prepare for the psychological aftermath of mass shootings and other traumatic events.

Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell delivers remarks during a conference at the Brookings Institution in WashingtonA U.S. rate hike may come "fairly soon" if data confirm the economy is continuing to grow and labor markets are still tightening, Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell said on Thursday in remarks that may help tee up higher rates as soon as mid-June. Powell said the economy remains on a "solid footing" and that he views ongoing job growth and evidence of rising wages as being more important than recent weakness in consumer spending and business investment. "There are good reasons to think that underlying growth is stronger than these recent readings suggest," Powell said in prepared remarks to be delivered at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.
