How do we work?

We're a rotating cast of volunteers with a flat organizational structure. Our goal is to collect public police data, and there's a lot of it. If you're reading this, there is still work to do.
We're a learning organization, and we want to hear from you. If you have questions, concerns, suggestions, or expertise, reach out in Discord or to [email protected].

Code volunteering

Non-code volunteering

  • Grant writing and non-profit operations experts to help us secure funding.
  • People with basic computer skills to submit and update datasets.
Donate on PayPal or Patreon, and we'll spend it on Data Bounties and infrastructure improvements. Small recurring donations are most helpful. Stability helps us chart a path.

Use our Data

Our data lives in DoltHub. Do you need something specific? Reach out in #request-data.
