  • A commission of 11 members, headed by George W. Wickersham, who were asked to investigate the causes of crime and to make recommendations for public policy and crime prevention strategies. The Wickersham Commission, or the National Committee on Law Observation and Enforcement, was established in 1929 in the United States. The commission paid particular attention to violations of the prohibition laws, which were quite common in the United States, and recommended a stricter enforcement of these laws.
