President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice

In line with Carol A. Archbold

about Administration of Justice in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

In the 1960s a police crisis was sparked by a series of events including several Court of last resort of the Country decisions that impacted due process and standard police procedures, the civil rights movement, antiwar protests during the time of the Vietnam War, and an increase in violent crime rates across the United States of America. In response to the social unrest, President Lyndon B. Johnson created the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice (also referred to as the President's Crime Commission) in 1965. More than three decades after the Wickersham Commission (1931), the President's Crime Commission would once again examine the state of crime and the administration of justice in the United States of America. Research was conducted by some of the leading experts in criminal justice and law on behalf of the crime commission.
