Find your state, city, or county

Use the search at the top of every page, or visit the Find a Location page to see a list of all locations that currently appear in the database.

Keep in mind

Not every U.S. city or county currently appears in the database, though we will be adding more locations over time.

Population data chart example

Population data

SOURCE: US Census API

View a city, county, or state’s population by race and Hispanic origin, and compare to similarly-sized cities in the database.

KEEP IN MIND

The Census asks about race and Hispanic origin in separate questions, so the numbers shown may not equal the total population (due to respondents identifying as both Hispanic and a non-white race category).

Full-time law enforcement staffing levels

SOURCE: Federal Bureau of Investigation Crime Data API

See how many officers and civilian staff are employed by your local law enforcement agency, and how the data compare to national averages.

Keep in mind

Not every law enforcement agency participates in this data collection, in part because the FBI recently transitioned to a new reporting system, NIBRS. National comparisons are only available at the city and state levels.

Screen shot of example grant funding over time charts

Federal grant funding

SOURCE: USASpending.gov API

Learn about your police department’s grant funding and explore the data for each grant on USASpending.gov.  

Keep in mind

We are only able to track a subset of all possible funding sources—the ones we think are most likely to fund law enforcement agencies—so the true total of funding may be higher than shown. One large source of federal funding includes UASI grants from DHS. Because these are made to a region-wide entity, we have elected to allocate a region's UASI grant to the largest law enforcement entity in the region. In some locations, we conduct additional queries against recipient ID numbers, so be cautious about drawing comparisons between locations.

Military equipment transfers

SOURCE: Defense Logistics Agency, LESO public information

See excess military equipment that has been transferred to your local law enforcement agency through the 1033/LESO program.

Keep in mind

Not every police department participates in the 1033/LESO program. Additionally, the total values listed only include non-controlled items transferred within the past year—so the true historical value of these transfers is likely larger than the snapshot presented here.

Screen shot of misconduct and settlements data

Police misconduct settlements and consent decrees

SOURCE: Public reporting, collected by Thurgood Marshall Institute staff

Review police misconduct settlements by your local law enforcement agency that resulted in compensation to victims or policy changes. Also available are consent decrees that local law enforcement agencies have entered into with the Department of Justice. 

Keep in mind

The amount of information available will vary widely between locations, and is based on public reporting, so this collection likely will not include all settlements.
