In a mere 90 days, a task force assembled by the Obama administration has issued an ambitious plan for improving police forces around the nation, including 59 recommendations for improving police diversity, training, use of technology and transparency in policies and practices, according to Ted Gest, Washington bureau chief of The Crime Report. The advisory group also recommended that the president create another task force to examine the entire criminal justice system. Whether these efforts will lead to any real change remains to be seen says Gest. “Some federal reports have led to dramatic change, while others have been left to gather dust.”
