Empowering law enforcement agencies with useful data and tools to continuously improve and strengthen relationships with the communities they serve.
Policing is as much about relationships as it is protection. We help law enforcement officers build better relationships by collaboratively improving policies and practices—within the department and its community partners.
Data is powerful and has the ability to initiate positive change. We work with researchers to identify innovative applications of science to create a better and more equitable tomorrow.
The Justice Database is the nation’s first database tracking national statistics on police behavior, including stops and use of force, and will standardize data collection across many of the country’s police departments.
Inspiring social change by merging data, science, and collaboration. At the Center for Policing Equity (CPE), we are researchers, thought leaders, and law enforcement professionals who believe the key to achieving equitable democracy in our nation lies in understanding—understanding people, their practices, and priorities.
Our desire to understand guides our research priorities and fuels our commitment to leverage data in a way that addresses the nation’s biggest social challenges through transparency and accountability.
