From the Paper:

"The greatest influence on postwar American criminal justice policy was President Johnson's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, whose main report, The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967), was appreciated by liberals and criminologists as a great breakthrough. Its conclusions quickly became the conventional wisdom, laying the foundation for criminal justice policy throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and into the 1990s.
"The commission made two recommendations that were especially important at the time. First, it insisted that police firmly adhere to lawful procedures when handling offenders. The Supreme Court, aware of the brutal investigating tactics that police chiefs either could not or would not rein in, had already handed down rulings describing how a lawful investigation would be conducted. Second, the commission urged the nation's criminal justice agencies, especially police departments, to improve their relations with minority communities."
