Protecting communities of color by strengthening oversight of police technology

The Justice Data Accountability Project addresses the growing challenges associated with the use of big data systems in policing, specifically focusing on ensuring equity, rigor, and transparency in the use of predictive policing tools.

In collaboration with a network of advisors from local communities, law enforcement, academia, and the tech sector, Impact Justice is working to build more robust procedures to guide the use of big data analytics in policing. The goal is to enlist broad community participation in the design of predictive systems and to make sure policies governing their use meet a high ethical standard.

Through the Justice Data Accountability Project, Impact Justice seeks to drive the conversation around predictive policing and the use of big data in policing, promote wide community engagement, and facilitate a thoughtful and rigorous analysis of how these tools are used by law enforcement.
