A committee appointed by Harvard president Drew Faust last year to review "how best to assure the strongest possible relations and mutual understanding" between the Harvard University Police Department and the University's "highly diverse community" has issued its report. President Faust has asked Provost Steven E. Hyman and Executive Vice President Ed Forst to review the group's recommendations to determine which can and should be implemented.
