"On December 18, 2014, President Barack Obama issued Executive Order 13684 creating the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The task force was composed of 11 members, including leaders from law enforcement, police unions, academia, youth movements, and civil rights organizations. The mission of the task force was clear: 'The Task Force shall, consistent with applicable law, identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to the President on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust.' Over three months, the task force conducted seven public listening sessions across the country and received testimony from more than 100 witnesses representing a wide range of law enforcement officials, civil rights advocates, community and faith leaders, academics, and others to ensure their recommendations would be informed by a diverse range of voices. The task force also considered more than 200 written submissions. […] Following extensive discussion and analysis of the testimony, the task force identified best practices and recommendations under each of these pillars and compiled the 'Final Report of the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing'."
