Barr appoints members of presidential law enforcement panelAttorney General William Barr on Wednesday named 18 law enforcement officials to a presidential commission that aims to study ways to reduce crime and increase respect for the law. The last presidential law enforcement commission was established in 1965, and one of its recommendations led to the creation of the national emergency number 911. The new commission’s members include senior federal law enforcement officials, including the FBI’s deputy director and the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, as well as police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors and rank-and-file officers from around the country.
