Read the COPS Office Publication – Interim Report of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing
The Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office has released a publication titled Interim Report of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The purpose of this publication is to identify best practices and offer recommendations on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust.
The Task Force on 21st Century Policing is co-chaired by Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and former Assistant Attorney General Laurie Robinson, and comprises a diverse array of experts from the law enforcement community, academia, youth activists, as well as community and civil rights leaders. The task force convened seven listening sessions to hear testimony and recommendations for action from government officials, law enforcement officers, academic experts, technical advisors, leaders from established nongovernmental organizations, including grass-roots movements, and any other members of the public who wished to comment.
