They examined how to foster strong, collaborative relationships between local law enforcement and the communities they serve. Their recommendations to the president are provided in this report. The members of the Task Force on 21st Century Policing are convinced that the concrete recommendations contained in this publication will bring long-term improvements to the ways in which law enforcement agencies interact with and bring positive change to their communities.
