Starting With What Works: Using Evidence-Based Strategies to Improve Community and Police Relations

The Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing is an important guiding document for modern law enforcement leaders. Within six categories—building trust and legitimacy, policy and oversight, technology and social media, community policing and crime reduction, training and education, and officer wellness and safety—the Task Force presents recommendations for law enforcement agencies and the federal government with the goal of strengthening democratic policing in a complex and diverse society.

The Task Force Report includes 156 recommendations and action items. For many agencies looking to begin implementation of these recommendations, the obvious question is “where do we start?”
