Today, Attorney General William P. Barr announced the establishment of the Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. On Oct. 28, 2019, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Order No. 13896, authorizing and designating the Attorney General to create such a Commission that would explore modern issues affecting law enforcement that most impact the ability of American policing to reduce crime.
The Commissioners, appointed by the Attorney General and announced today, include Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, urban police chiefs, state prosecutors, county sheriffs, members of rural law enforcement, federal agents, U.S. Attorneys, and a state attorney general. In addition to their diverse experiences and backgrounds, each member brings to the Commission an expertise in formulating and shaping law enforcement policy and leading police departments and law enforcement organizations.
Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said, “I am honored to participate on this Presidential Commission and I’m looking forward to working with Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and other leaders from across the country in this meaningful appointment.”
The Commission will meet monthly for the next year and then report its findings to the Attorney General, who will submit a final report to the President.
