Gov. John Kasich plans to address the group he commissioned to study police and community relations in Ohio.

The latest in a series of meetings around the state will take place Monday at Ohio State University.

Kasich formed the 24-person committee of city council members, religious leaders and law enforcement officials after several police-involved shootings in Ohio and across the country raised concerns.

The task force on police-community relations has collected information at forums around Ohio to develop recommendations on how to help train police officers to interact with residents in minority communities.

A related task force created by Attorney General Mike DeWine is reviewing possible changes to the way Ohio trains officers.
