What We Do

At The Center for Policing Equity, we do science to promote justice. We gather and analyze data on behaviors within public safety systems and use those data to help communities achieve safer policing outcomes.

How We Do It

We work to achieve this bold vision by balancing two interrelated efforts:

  • Reducing harm within existing law enforcement systems, pursuing strategies that address the racist behaviors, policies, and practices of law enforcement.
  • Redesigning and implementing new models that safeguard and empower communities to enhance and maintain collective public safety.

Our Programs

We use science to create levers for social, cultural, and legislative change. Our programs leverage the collective power of behavioral science, policy evaluation, data analyses, law enforcement expertise, and community engagement to achieve more efficient, effective, and equitable public safety systems.
