Project Overview


The Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice (TREC) is seeking research on the effectiveness of certain training elements and curriculum to change law enforcement officer behavior and generate desired outcomes of the criminal justice system.

Anticipated deliverables

  • A study that includes a definition of officer behavior and system outcomes, and how to measure those accordingly.

Planned use of results

This data can help implement changes to training content, delivery and cadence as necessary and inform state policy and legislative change.

The project is in progress.
