Black and Brown people in this country face violent, racist, and unjust police behavior perpetuated by biased policies, legislation, and public safety systems.

The Center for Policing Equity (CPE) gathers and analyzes data on behaviors within public safety systems and uses those data to help communities achieve safer policing outcomes. Our goal is to make policing less racist, less deadly, and less omnipresent.

Contributions from corporations, foundations, and individuals like you power all of our work. Your support is critical to helping CPE partner with our most vulnerable communities—particularly Black and Brown communities—to reimagine their public safety systems.

We need YOU—will you join us?

If the presence of armed officers is a constant in tragic outcomes, that should prompt us to ask: Where can we do without them?
