We're an organization of volunteers
We believe that aggregating law enforcement data can empower the citizenry with facts and oversight capability. Our volunteers are engineers, project and strategy managers, designers, and critical thinkers. We are data-driven and non-partisan; as team members, we set aside all political alignments, motives, and biases so that we can provide objective insights into law enforcement trends.
