CINCINNATI (AP) - A presidential task force examining ways to improve police-community relations is in Cincinnati listening to law enforcement representatives, researchers and others on policing practices and other issues.

The two-day session held by the Task Force on 21st Century Policing began Friday at the University of Cincinnati. 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.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey is a co-chairman of the task force, which is to report to President Barack Obama. The report is due in March.

Ramsey says the group doesn’t expect to solve every problem. But he says the task force is looking for recommendations that can be built upon broadly.
