COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The panel commissioned by Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) to study police and community relations in Ohio is getting closer to a final report.

Kasich formed the 24-person committee of city council members, religious leaders and law enforcement officials after several police-involved shootings in Ohio and across the country raised concerns.

The task force has collected information at forums around Ohio to develop recommendations on how to help train police officers to interact with residents in minority communities.

The panel was scheduled to meet again Thursday in Columbus with recommendations expected in a few weeks.

A related task force created by Attorney General Mike DeWine is reviewing possible changes to the way Ohio trains officers.
