In a memo released on April 5, 2017, the Attorney General announced the creation of Task Force subcommittees that will focus on a variety of issues including developing violent crime reduction strategies, supporting prevention and re-entry efforts, updating charging and sentencing policies, reviewing asset forfeiture guidance, reducing illegal immigration and human trafficking, combatting hate crimes, and evaluating marijuana enforcement policy.

The Attorney General further directed the Task Force to hold a National Summit on Crime Reduction and Public Safety within 120 days, and asked for Task Force subcommittees to provide initial recommendations no later than July 27.
