COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus police chief plans to speak at an Arizona meeting of a presidential task force charged with examining ways to improve police-community relations.

Chief Kim Jacobs was slated to speak Saturday afternoon, concentrating on supervisory, leadership and management training.

The meeting at the Phoenix Convention Center marks the fifth session held by the Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The task force was formed in December amid continuing outcry over police use of fatal force in Ferguson, Missouri, and in cities including Cleveland and the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek.

The task force met in Cincinnati last month, where panel topics included use of force and police oversight.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1E85o6D ) reports that Jacobs has promoted the city’s way of doing things at various police conferences.
