Profiling the Police
USING EYEWITNESS VIDEO AS A SOURCE OF DATA ABOUT POLICE ABUSE
WITNESS partnered with El Grito de Sunset Park – a community organization in Sunset Park, Brooklyn – to find new ways to use eyewitness video and open source data to expose abuses by some NYPD and begin to illustrate how police abuse is part of a larger systemic problem.
This site serves as a use case study for advocates, journalists, legal experts and technologists interested in exploring new forms of storytelling through the analysis and curation of human rights videos.
Our “Profiling the Police” project won a 2019 Shorty Awards Audience Honor and was a Finalist in the Social Activism category!
