Current Radio Program:

We interviewed Laurie Robinson, Professor, George Mason University about her role as Co-Chair of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing and results of their findings. Ms. Robinson is a former Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP). Her three years of service in the Obama Administration, coupled with seven years in the Clinton Administration, make her the longest serving head of OJP in its 45-year history.

Ms. Robinson’s Co-Chair was Commissioner Charles Ramsey of the Philadelphia Police Department

On December 18, 2014, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The Task Force seeks to identify best practices and make recommendations to the President on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust and examine, among other issues, how to foster strong, collaborative relationships between local law enforcement and the communities they protect.

The Task Force was directed to provide an initial report on recommendations to the President by March 2, 2015.

The report is available at http://www.cops.usdoj.gov/policingtaskforce.

The primary recommendation: “The President should support and provide funding for the creation of a National Crime and Justice Task Force to review and evaluate all components of the criminal justice system for the purpose of making recommendations to the country on comprehensive criminal justice reform.”
