Protest 'walkouts' in US cities over Michael Brown shooting
US President Barack Obama has requested $263m (£167m) to improve police training, pay for body cameras and restore trust in policing.
Mr Obama asked Congress for the funds as part of a day of White House meetings following a week of unrest in the wake of the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
Protests spread across the US over perceived policing injustices.
On Monday, students and workers held a lunchtime walkout in several cities, including New York and Washington, to highlight the issue.
