New York Police Transparency Database

New Yorkers have a right to know what rules the police are following to keep us safe. But far too often, police departments across the state don’t have clear or specific policies in place, or they are made with no community input and hidden from the public.

After extensive research and unprecedented public information requests – and a few court orders – the NYCLU is proud to share this first-of-its-kind comprehensive database and online tool with you.

Transparency is crucial to holding law enforcement officials accountable to New York’s communities. We hope you will go behind the badge, learn more and get involved.
