Following months of potential meetings, witness and study, U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr submitted the terminal report of the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice to the White House. This report represents the leading wide study of law enforcement in more than 55 years.
On Oct. 28, 2019, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Order No. 13896, which directed the Department of Justice to plant the “Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice.” The purpose of the Commission was to conduct a present study of the state of American policing and determine specific measures to lessen offense and aid the rule of law. At the conclusion of this study, the Commission was to effect a report.
