COVID-19: For more up-to-date information on policing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, check out our News section.

To support and help strengthen the work of advocates and organizers, the Hub is committed to providing and uplifting up-to-date research, reports, data, model policies, toolkits and other resources. We do this by searching for, categorizing, and making available existing resources from partner organizations and others working on issues related to policing. When needed, the Hub also produces its own research in collaboration with partners. This resource database is categorized, easy to search, and regularly updated by our research team.

If you would like to suggest a resource to be included in our database, please submit it here.

Resources that appear on the Community Resource Hub website are not necessarily supported or endorsed by the Hub. The resources that appear represent various different policies, toolkits, and data that have been presented to challenge issues relevant to safety, policing, and accountability.

Before the Bullet Hits the Body: Dismantling Predictive Policing in Los Angeles

Stop LAPD Spying Coalition

This 2018 report does not take a top-down policy reform or recommendation approach, nor does the report seek more “transparency” and “oversight” of policing, an institution that remains inherently violent and flawed by design. Instead this report, rooted in the community and our fight for abolition of policing, takes us on a journey exposing the multiple tentacles of state violence including – the creation of the “other,” knowledge production and the deep complicity of academia, corporate profit, and the deadly impact and trauma of programs such as Predictive Policing on our communities.

Oakland is Reimagining Public Safety: The Defund Police Coalition Report in Response to the Reimagining Public Safety Task Force Draft Recommendations

Anti Police-Terror Project

The Oakland Reimagining Public Safety Task Force was created in direct response to significant local demand to redirect monies from the Oakland Police Department to programs, support services and resources that take a holistic view of public safety and focus on addressing the root causes of so-called “crime” rather than relying on militarized policing and a violent, cyclical carceral state. The Defund Coalition is excited about the many recommendations presented that offer a real opportunity to shift, reimagine and evolve the way Oakland thinks about and implements public safety. This report responds to each of the 114 draft recommendations issued by the Task Force. We break down all the recommendations we support, the ones we don’t, and why.
