Updates from PDAP

We've submitted for grant renewal from Heinz, and are actively seeking additional sources of funding.

We're getting a slow and steady flow of requests and volunteer offers via the forms on our front page.

Open projects

  • We need a jail roster scraper for Allegheny County, to help local folks investigate who's being kept in the county jail, and for how long.

  • Our friends at Big Local News are looking for help scraping some data about officer-involved shootings from California. We're trying to cover 23 agencies.

  • We're using machine learning to identify data sources. We have an algorithm, and need to generate more training data for the next iteration.
