Mission

PDAP is consolidating data from every U.S. agency into a critical public resource. Police chronicle their activity with published reports, but each department acts independently. There is no single source of data documenting the police system. To build one, we're using Python extractors written by activists to scrape public data from police websites.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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. 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.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

PDAP aims to be an independent, complete, and universally trusted source of information about United States Law Enforcement.

We're open-source, meaning all of our code is publicly available on GitHub.

We're committed to maintaining a "bright line" between the source material and our published databases.

We're decentralizing the work of data scraping, allowing communities to form organically around types of data or regions. This balances the massive scale of the problem against our limited resources. People with particular expertise or interest can take ownership over a domain, and use our tools to moderate and audit each other's work.
