U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has scheduled a visit to Kansas City Thursday to speak about reducing violent crime.

Sessions will meet with state and local officials Thursday afternoon at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the federal courthouse in downtown Kansas City, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, which announced plans for the visit Wednesday.

He’ll be discussing violent crime and the efforts of the Justice Department’s Project Safe Neighborhoods.

Sessions has delivered similar talks in other cities recently.

Last month, in appearances in Texas and Georgia, the attorney general said that reducing crime is a priority both for him and President Donald Trump.

He also spoke on those occasions about how he and Trump are committed to supporting law enforcement officers.
