The Task Force, which is comprised of members of DRI, as well as a diversity of representatives from various other organizations, is focused on how to improve trust between law enforcement agencies and the communities that they serve. The Task Force will be presenting a number of monthly “Town Hall” webinars” designed to have representatives from various stakeholders engage and dialogue on police practices, community involvement and suggested reforms in the delivery of police services. The first Town Hall is slated to take place in September and is expected to have panelists from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
