FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - A report from a reform panel formed after the Ferguson police shooting of Michael Brown has several suggestions including consolidating the metro area's police departments and municipal courts.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which received a copy of the Ferguson Commission's 198-page report, says it recommends changes in several areas to address social and economic divisions highlighted since the shooting.

Other proposals from the 16-person commission include establishing a statewide use-of-force database to track police shootings and making the data publicly available, and developing a statewide plan to deal with mass demonstrations that focuses on preserving life. The report also recommended establishing school-based healing centers to address behavioral and health issues.
