Our Mission: We Partner With Communities And Police To Promote Public Safety Through Transparency, Equity, and Democratic Engagement.

Our work focuses on front-end, or democratic, accountability — meaning the public has a voice in setting transparent, ethical, and effective policing policies and practices before the police or government act. The goal is to achieve public safety in a manner that is equitable, non-discriminatory, and respectful of public values.

Broadly speaking, our work is centered around three focus areas:

Front-End Voice in Policing: We believe that in a democratic society, the public must have a voice in how it is policed.

Regulation of Policing Technology: We believe that there must be transparency and public debate around the adoption of new policing technologies.

Re-Imagining Public Safety: We believe it is time for a national conversation about what public safety means, and how it is best achieved.
