EUGENE, Ore. -- The City of Eugene got a national report on Wednesday that focused on improving local police departments.

The presentation was called Policing Solutions for the 21st Century.

The term comes from former President Barack Obama. His administration appointed a task force to develop recommendations on how policing can help reduce crime, while building public trust.

After the presentation, Mayor Lucy Vinis said she feels this report will help Eugene.

"I think my take away is that in Eugene we are on the right path and we have a lot to learn and the recommendations of reports like this will really help us frame our next steps as a community...I think it's incredibly valuable for us," said Mayor Vinis.

The recommendations were broken into separate pillars:

Pillar One - Building Trust and Legitimacy
Pillar Two - Policy and Oversight
Pillar Three - Technology and Social Media
Pillar Four - Community Policing and Crime Reduction
Pillar Five - Training and Education
Pillar Six - Officer Wellness and Safety
