Video Uploads

We understand most people record video instead of photos and are working to create a secure method for victims of police misconduct to attach videos to their incident reports.

Social Media

We are working to expand our database to the popular social media networks to further expose police misconduct and make such conduct more easily shareable.

Automated Notifications

We are working to create an automated platform where all published incident reports will be submitted to the proper local authorities on a weekly basis until a response is received.
