Welcome to PDAP!

We're making a source of truth for police data.

If you don't know what this is, start at https://pdap.io/.

How to get involved

Collect Data

Get paid to collect data as part of a Data Bounty. None are currently active, but we need contributions to datasets. You can help build a database of police agencies for a community of data collectors!

New to python? You can help check any submissions to our datasets pending approval. If there are data submissions pending, you can run these utilities to check incoming data. Accelerate the data intake process! If you have questions, reach out in Discord!

Contribute Code

Know python? Contribute to our Data Scrapers repo.

Head to the GitHub Roadmap to work on infrastructure issues.

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. What can you learn from it? How can it be better?
