California’s New Website Shows Numbers of People Killed by Police, and Their Race. By Matt Novak, GIZMODO. September 2, 2015.
“The California Department of Justice [has] launched a new website that publishes data about police interactions with the public, including the number of people who die at the hands of police.
Called Open Justice, the initiative is being billed as the first of its kind to provide detailed data to the public on a variety of crime statistics, including the number of officers killed and assaulted while on duty. The California DOJ says that the effort is a step towards more transparency amidst America’s ongoing debate about citizens dying both in police custody and by cops on the street.
Open Justice has two components: the first being the more public-facing website called Dashboard which includes graphs and more easily digestible stats. The second is the Open Data Portal which includes the raw data on criminal justice in California.”
