President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing released its final report in May of 2015. This guiding document—for sworn and non-sworn members in all ranks and assignments throughout the 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States—was the first comprehensive study of the policing profession since 1967. The over 100-page report with hundreds of actionable recommendations all fit under six “pillars” aimed at fulfilling, restoring, and maintaining the public’s trust: “Trust between law enforcement agencies and the people they protect and serve is essential in a democracy.” Think back to a time when a friend, a teammate, a coworker, or a member of government asked you: “Do you trust me?” Did it take long to answer that question? Probably not. Now, think about how difficult it was to answer when a loved one, your significant other, or a spouse asked you: “Why do you love me?” Did you find trouble putting to words something you deeply knew to be inherently true? Both trust and love are conditions of the heart; not conditions of the head.
