Publishing Data to Build Trust in Police

California’s Department of Justice has launched OpenJustice, an initiative to use open data to strengthen public trust in police and improve police accountability. With its launch, OpenJustice has published three data sets of statewide information on officers killed and assaulted in the line of duty, deaths in police custody, and arrest rates. OpenJustice will eventually expand to publish more criminal justice datasets and will develop a dashboard of metrics to help users analyze this data.
