We need a unified source of police data.

Our mission is to consolidate data from every U.S. police agency into a single public resource.

There is no complete source of truth for data documenting the police. Everyone wants better systems—documenting the current one is our first step.

To build a single source, we're using Python extractors written by activists to scrape public data from police websites. This is a massive project and we're just getting started—if you're reading this, there's still work to do.

We can't fix what we can't measure.

Every vision for the future of justice policy starts with the same first step: understanding the current system.

We can use already public data to understand the police systems around us.

Data Collection

There are over 18,000 police organizations, each with a unique way to publish information. There is no single source to access this public data. We can make it usable, measurable, and actionable by putting it in one place.

Data Storage

We archive raw data extractions from police websites. Our data and source scrapers are publicly available, free of charge.
