The University of California has released its final report on last November's pepper spraying incident at UC Davis. 

The UC System says all campuses will follow the 49 recommendations of how to train for and respond to protests.   

The report says administrators should be on the ground with officers during a demonstration.  Outside law enforcement agencies should also be consulted during events.   

Lynn Tierney is with the UC President's office.  She will lead the implementation of those changes, "The timeframe is that within six months that campuses should have back a work plan and show their progress on implementation."

Tierney says within a year, administrators and police should be trained to effectively communicate with each other and with students during protests.

The report also says campus police departments should fully document their response to such events using video and independent observers.
