On November 14, 2019, the International Public Safety Association will host a no-cost webinar on health in the uniformed services.

The Sexual Assault Kit Initiative, funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, has recently updated its toolkit to include the Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence Reporting (SAFER) Portal. The SAFER Portal is a collection of best practices and protocols that provide guidance on using a multidisciplinary approach that ensures effective communication and offers policy considerations.

The Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice

President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order last week to establish the Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice (the Commission)—the first comprehensive commission on criminal justice in nearly 50 years.

The Commission will conduct a comprehensive review of the nation’s criminal justice system, develop a strategic plan to include recommendations for moving forward, and provide guidance to federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments. The Commission will study issues that are critical to ensuring that our communities are safe and that those who enforce and administer the law are properly supported.

Pilot Program: Use of Body-Worn Cameras

On Monday, October 28, 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a pilot program which, for the first time, will allow federally deputized task force officers to use body-worn cameras while serving arrest warrants or executing search warrants. The DOJ partners with state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement on hundreds of federal task forces throughout the nation. Together, these task forces work to combat violent crime, stem the flow of illegal narcotics, and arrest dangerous fugitives. Several of DOJ’s partner agencies require their officers to wear body-worn cameras and have requested that their officers wear these cameras on federal task forces when the use of force is possible.
