We had dozens of open working sessions. Some of them were quiet, with one or two people making progress. Some of them were brainstorms, where people disagreed and learned from each other. These happen in Discord, and you should join one! Look for the calendar icon and "Events" in the upper left.
Our goals for 2022
Write more Scrapers.
The more Scrapers we have, the more we have learned about the landscape of police data.
Here are our current Scrapers. Each one has the potential to shed light on an individual department; together, they can transform our understanding of police at the county, state, and federal level.
We have a small non-profit with a board and a few people dedicated to keeping the lights on; we want our volunteer community to consist of people with skin in the game, and agency over how things work.
We can use web3 technology to create tools that are decentralized, transparent, and traceable—and reward contributors.
How to help
Join our Discord community! Ask questions, share your knowledge, join open sessions. Everything you see is built by volunteers, and this could include you. In particular we need python developers and people who know how to secure non-profit funding.
