The White House Police Data Initiative

Tuesday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 5
110 E 2nd St

In May 2015, President Obama announced the launch of the White House Police Data Initiative, working with 24 police departments to leverage data on police-citizen interactions (e.g., officer-involved shootings, use of force, body cam video, and stops) to increase transparency and accountability, build community trust, and enable innovation. During this session, moderated by Lynn Overmann, Senior Advisor to the U.S. CTO, three of the participating jurisdictions will discuss their work opening up data and using advanced analytics to improve community relations and decrease uses of force. They will also share models for how technologists and agencies can work together to achieve common goals.
