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.

Police State, Race & Public Health in time of COVID

ACLU – Principles for Technology-Assisted Contact-Tracing


This policy paper outlines general principles that should guide the consideration of any proposal for technology-assisted contact-tracing, or TACT. This document does not address fine-grained details, either technical or legal, but sets out principles to help evaluate any TACT proposal. Given the trans-jurisdictional nature of many of these schemes, specific legal protections may take different forms in different contexts. But architectural and design principles will have an impact anywhere such a system is deployed.

Beware: Bluetooth Ahead – The Civil Rights & Privacy Dangers of Deploying Bluetooth to Track COVID-19 Exposure

Surveillance Technology Oversight Project, Inc. at the Urban Justice Center

In the fight against COVID-19, one of our most powerful weapons is manual contact-tracing, the time-consuming process of interviewing patients to find who they might have exposed to the virus. Alarmingly, new technological alternatives to manual contact tracing threaten to distract from these public health efforts, creating products that likely won’t improve public health, but which will pose an existential threat to the public’s privacy. If Apple and Google’s Bluetooth method goes forward, it’s also clear that existing legal protections are insufficient. Under existing laws, the use of Bluetooth proximity detection will just become another deeply invasive tool in federal, state, and local governments’ arsenal of surveillance technology.
