Background Information

CPE is a research and action think tank that uses data and evidence-informed approaches to advance social justice and create levers for social and policy change. We work collaboratively with law enforcement and communities to identify ways to strengthen relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve. We conduct research to assist law enforcement in their goal of delivering safer and more equitable public safety.

The National Justice Survey is part of a broader initiative by CPE to improve relationships between police and the communities they serve and provide accurate, timely data on police behaviors. This initiative is called the National Justice Database.
