Data in Policing: Collection, Transparency, and Civil Liberties
Reimagining Policing Workshop Series
In this conversation, local and national practitioners in the fields of data science and public safety provided mayors and community leaders with insight into how robust data collection and transparency can lead to safer communities.
Attendees walked away with perspective on best practices, tools, and opportunities for communities, police departments, and elected officials to work together to leverage data, while ensuring the civil liberties of historically marginalized groups. This virtual workshop is a continuation of our ongoing series hosted in partnership with Cities United and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights to provide educational tools and analysis on the spectrum of policing and public safety options, alternative public safety models, and community-centered review processes.
