ASSESSING THE EVIDENCE
About the Task Force
The independent Task Force on Policing was launched in November 2020 by the Council on Criminal Justice. Its mission is to identify the policies and practices most likely to reduce violent encounters between officers and the public and improve the fairness and effectiveness of American policing. The Task Force on Policing is staffed by the Council under the direction of Nancy La Vigne, with research support from the Crime Lab at The University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy.
