The President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing hosted multiple listening sessions to gain broad input and expertise from stakeholders. The information collected in these meetings informed and advised the Task Force in developing recommendations.

The first Listening Session focused on the topic of “Building Relationships and Legitimacy” and was held on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at the Newseum in Washington D.C. The meeting was open to the public and seating was on a first-come first-served basis. The Listening Session was filmed and can be watched in its entirety online. Please see information on the Listening Session's Disability Access.
