US Attorney General Loretta Lynch visits the valley

The nations top law enforcer is in the valley, here to praise Phoenix Police.

US Attorney General Loretta Lynch is spotlighting six police departments across the country leading the way with law enforcement innovation.

Lynch left the Phoenix Police Department and traveled to the Arizona Law Enforcement Training Academy near 15th Avenue and Dobbins. She watched a training exercise called de-escalation training. She says the way Phoenix Police do it is an example for the rest of the country.

The goal of the training is to defuse dangerous situations before they turn violent. The training took place at ALEA's "Tactical Village," where they practiced confrontations in a mock-up of a store, a school, a house, and an apartment.

"As you know this is a topic of great concern. People have questions about how officers are trained; I saw a thoughtful and effective approach to a number of different scenarios," said Loretta Lynch.

Lynch also took some questions from the media. FOX 10 asked how she could guarantee a fair investigation of Hillary Clinton, now that President Obama had supported her for President.

"We do not discuss any case with anyone at the White House. The endorsement by the President does not impact any of the cases we are working on," said Lynch.

The AG says that the FBI is continuing to investigate, but she did not speculate when that investigation might be finished.
