Welcome to policemisconduct.net! My name is Tim Lynch and I work on criminal justice issues here at Cato.
This site is one component of our new National Police Misconduct Reporting Project (NPMRP). The purpose of the project is to gather news reports about police misconduct in America in a fair and unbiased way. Our objective is to study the scope of the problem and to identify policies that can minimize misconduct.
We welcome feedback from readers — so if you think we have made an error, let us know. And if you have seen a credible news story about police misconduct that we have not already reported, we would like to hear from you — please use this form for that purpose.
This project is a work-in-progress. As time goes by, we will expand our reporting capacity and make other improvements. One easy way that you can help this project is by spreading the word about this new site in the coming weeks and months. Thanks for visiting!
