Our Impact

Since our founding, CPE has demonstrated the transformative impact of data-driven interventions and has partnered with 60 law enforcement agencies in 30 states, serving 85.2m+ people in the U.S.



Propelling Policy

Our country's urgent call for alternative responses to public safety has challenged law enforcement agencies to make systemic change. Police departments that partnered with CPE have adopted one or more of our policy recommendations:



We also work closely with policymakers to propel federal and state legislation:

  • Supported and provided language for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act sponsored by Karen Bass. The Act increases accountability for law enforcement and establishes the National Police Misconduct Registry to compile data on police misconduct
  • Endorsed Anti-racism in Public Health legislation introduced by Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA-D), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (MA-D), and Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-D)
  • Supported the End Racial and Religious Profiling (ERPA) legislation introduced by Senator Benjamin Cardin (MD-D)
  • Supported New York state legislation introduced to curb racial profiling through state collection and analysis of stop data
  • Provided technical assistance and input for Missouri state legislation introduced to highlight best practices in key states for collection and analysis of stop data at the state level
  • Supported Berkeley City Councilmember Ben Bartlett’s “Safety for All: George Floyd Community Safety Act,” a measure requiring the collection and analysis of use of force and stop data
  • Advised Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf about a bill he ratified in July 2020 that:
    • Requires LEAs to conduct background checks for job applicants and requires that agencies disclose officer’s employment history, including disciplinary action, complaints, and reason for separation;
    • Mandates that LEAs provide reason and rationale before hiring an individual whose separation record includes excessive force, harassment, theft, discrimination, sexual abuse or misconduct, domestic violence, coercion of a false confession, filing a false report, or a judicial finding of dishonesty; and
    • Establishes that Municipal Police Officers’ Training and Education Training Commission (MPOTEC) maintains an electronic database containing separation records of law enforcement
