Department of Justice on 12/2020

On October 28, 2019, President Donald Trump signed Executive Order No. 13896, which directed the department of Justice to establish the “Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice.” The purpose of the Commission is to conduct a modern study of the state of American policing and determine specific measures to reduce crime and promote the rule of law.

At the conclusion of this study, the Commission was instructed to issue a report with recommendations, which the Attorney General would submit to the President. Under the directive of the President’s order, I hereby present the final report of the Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice.

The Commission has worked diligently to compose a report that should have a lasting impact to improve American law enforcement for years to come. It did so, moreover, under significant challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these challenges, the Commission continued its work to assemble a report that reviewed a diversity of important issues that affect law enforcement and their capacity to safeguard American communities.
