The Police Data Initiative (PDI) was launched by the White House in May 2015 as a recommendation of the Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Today, it continues as a community of leading law enforcement agencies, technologists, and researchers committed to improving the relationship between citizens and police through uses of data that increase transparency, build community trust, and strengthen accountability.
PDI is centered on two key components. The first component being the use of open data to build transparency and increase community trust, and the second being the uses of data to greater enhance internal accountability through effective analysis.
In September 2016, the Norman Police Department became the first agency in Oklahoma to join the Police Data Initiative aiming build community trust through transparency and data sharing.
“Participation in the Police Data Initiative is another way the Norman Police Department can utilize data and technology to further strengthen a culture of transparency and accountability with the community,” said Norman Police Chief Keith Humphrey. “We strongly believe that this type of transparency and openness will enhance public trust.”
The Norman Police Department’s datasets will be housed here in the Open Data Portal. These datasets are here to fill in blanks on areas pertaining to policing and public safety in Norman while also providing important context for what we hear in the media about our community.
Over the next year, NPD is committed to providing citizens with access to the following datasets: departmental demographics (including hiring demographics); use of force incidents; complaints; demographics for contacts, citations and arrests; and community engagement efforts. Additional datasets will be added as the project moves forward, and data will be updated on a quarterly basis.
