LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The U.S. Attorney in Louisville has been selected to join a working group that is part of a presidential commission on law enforcement.

U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman, whose jurisdiction is the western half of Kentucky, will serve on the Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice Law Enforcement Recruitment and Training Working Group.

Coleman said in a release from the U.S. Attorney's office that the working group will explore “critically important challenges of recruitment, retention, and training” of law enforcement officers.

The law enforcement commission was created by presidential executive order in October. The commission will focus on studying law enforcement officers who are tasked with reducing crime on a daily basis.
