Police Data Accessibility Project

Data is Plural: “The Police Data Accessibility Project is compiling a meta-dataset of police records: where to find them online, what time period they cover, how often they’re updated, and other characteristics. The searchable, downloadable dataset includes links to 1,700+ resources, such as traffic stop datasets, crime maps, use-of-force reports, contract and policy listings, and many other types of records, across hundreds of agencies. The team also maintains a dataset of 23,000+ criminal legal agencies.

Related: The Vera Institute of Justice’s Police Data Transparency Index, which scored 90+ local police agencies across 10 categories of data transparency; its methodology page links to a more detailed, downloadable spreadsheet.”
