It’s now been two years since we launched policemisconduct.net — so here’s a brief update on our efforts. We still consider the project a work-in-progress. We’re pleased with what we have thus far produced and with the steadily increasing queries we receive from academics, university students, reporters, local activists, lawyers, and victims of police misconduct. We also know that we are not catching all of the misconduct stories out there (much less the actual number of (the unreported) misconduct incidents). Thanks to folks who send us stories–especially those who do it on a regular basis! We will keep working to improve our reporting.
A simple and easy way you can help us out is to spread the word about our web site with social media. So if you haven’t blasted one of our stories/posts to all of your friends lately, now would be good time to do so. Thanks for your support.
