At the Policing Project, we believe just and effective policing requires action.

We partner with civic leaders, law enforcement agencies, grassroots community organizations, and advocacy groups across the country to promote public safety through transparency, equity, and democratic engagement.

Our work has been as wide-ranging as running city-wide community engagement processes in New York and Los Angeles, to conducting an innovative cost-benefit analysis study of policing actions in Nashville, to aiding in the implementation of the federal consent decree in Cleveland. In all of the places we work we have two goals: helping departments and communities address their specific local needs, and developing models of police-community engagement that can be replicated nationwide.
