This report provides U.S. law enforcement agencies with guiding principles and recommendations to help reduce crime while building public trust within the communities they serve.
Recommendations in the report fall into six categories:
- Building trust and legitimacy
- Policy and oversight
- Technology and social media
- Community policing and crime reduction
- Training and education
- Officer wellness and safety
The report, developed by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services and the President’s Task Force on Twenty-First Century Policing, was written in response to a White House executive order issued in December 2014 aimed at improving relationships between law enforcement and communities.
