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.

Police Surveillance: Facial Recognition Use in Your Backyard

Open the Government & MuckRock

The use of facial recognition technology by police departments, both small and large, has quietly proliferated throughout the country. MuckRock and Open the Government sent over 112 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the largest police agencies to answer a number of questions about their use of facial recognition technology. This project was launched to help the public investigate their local police agencies’ use of facial recognition technology. This resource includes a guide on the project and a database of all information collected so far.

A Diversion Toolkit for Communities: How to Build a Pre-Charge Restorative Justice Diversion Program That Reduces Youth Criminalization While Meeting the Needs of People Harmed

Impact Justice

The Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice partners with communities across the nation to address harm through dialogue among those most impacted. It works to shift the paradigm from seeing crime as a violation of the law to understanding crime as harm that requires individual, interpersonal, community, and system-wide accountability and healing. This toolkit was primarily created for community-based organizations (CBOs) interested in starting a restorative justice diversion program for youth in their county. While the toolkit is most applicable to the US, the core ideas and resources could be useful for people looking for alternatives to incarceration in other countries.
