The Center for Policing Equity has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create the nation’s first police profiling database. Over 40 national law enforcement agencies from across the country have signed up to participate in this database that will standardize data collection across police departments.  This database will provide an opportunity to analyze and ultimately correct racial disparities where they can be found.

UCLA Assistant Professor and President of the Center for Policing Equity, Dr. Phillip Atiba Goff, has been selected to lead a three-year project, initiated by police chiefs from across the country,  and funded by $1 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF), to create the nation’s first, largest, and most robust database on racial profiling. Once populated, this repository will be used by researchers and law enforcement leaders to identify disparities and offer a starting point for more progressive, equitable policing. UCLA Today’s Rebecca Kendall spoke with Dr. Phillip Atiba Goff about the new Justice Database project, why it is important to law enforcement leaders, and why racial profiling is something that impacts us all.
