21st century policing

In December 2014 President Barack Obama established the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The group's mission was to "...identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to the President on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust."

The task force's efforts were focused on six pillars:

  • Building Trust and Legitimacy
  • Policy and Oversight
  • Technology and Social Media
  • Community Policing and Crime Reduction
  • Training and Education
  • Officer Wellness and Safety


The final report was released in May 2015 and included 59 concrete recommendations and 92 action items that provided a blueprint for cities and towns to use as they develop policing strategies.
