Since the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing concluded its work, the national conversation about policing and police reform has only intensified. In this report, NPI assesses how the concepts, findings, action items, and recommendations contained in the Report’s six pillars impacted law enforcement agencies and policing.

NPI’s effort was not intended to be a full-scope evaluation of the Task Force or its recommendations. Instead, this assessment was designed to provide an objective review of how the recommendations have been received and enacted in law enforcement agencies between 2015-2020.
