The President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice was established under Executive Order No. 13896 signed by President Trump. The Commission serves the important function of studying ways to make American law enforcement the most trusted and effective guardians of our communities.
Most recently, the Commission completed its hearings on reentry, with panels on getting back to work and transitioning from institution to community. The Commission also hosted a hearing on grant programs, featuring perspectives from the field. The hearings were held over three days via teleconference. Each teleconference featured expert witnesses who provided testimony and, subsequently, answered questions from the Commissioners.
