The Police Data Initiative is a national network designed to enhance understanding of crime and public safety and accountability between law enforcement and the community through open data. To date, over 130 law enforcement agencies nationwide, large and small, have joined this community of practice. In doing so, they are taking extraordinary steps to advance the field nationally, and build collaborative relationships locally to improve public safety.
The Police Foundation has recently completed a refresh of the Police Data Initiative website. Check out the Police Data Initiative website here, and follow the links below to view our other resources on police open data.
