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.

Inclusion in the database does not necessarily preclude any individual from appointment as an officer.

Revocation of Police Officer Certification: A Viable Remedy for Police Misconduct?

Roger L. Goldman & Steven Puro (Saint Louis University)

A report that describes the statutes and regulations in 44 states that license and revoke licenses of law enforcement officers for misconduct. There is great variation among the states on what conduct can lead to revocation, e.g., some states require conviction of a crime whereas others permit revocation administratively, after a hearing. There are also differences on what types of officers are subject to having their licenses removed, e.g., in some states, only peace officers, in others, correctional officers are also covered.

Substitute House Bill 1064 – Washington State Changes to Deadly Force Law

State of Washington

Legislation that makes it “easier” to prosecute police over misusing deadly force by removing the need to prove malice. Summary of changes from the Seattle Met:
1) It makes the “good faith” standard objective rather than subjective – another officer in a similar situation also needs to have believed use of deadly force was necessary
2) It still requires police to undergo de-escalation training every year but doesn’t list it as a condition of maintaining certification
3) It changes the requirement to render first aid to the “earliest safe opportunity,” to cover cases in which it’s not safe for the cop to apply first aid immediately
4) It requires that the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission also seek input from police unions and minority law enforcement associations on adopting the rules
