We obtained data on 62 Colorado sheriff's departments.

This is the first nationwide evaluation of policing in the United States. It was built using data from state and federal databases, public records requests to local police departments, and media reports. While police data is never perfect, and there are additional indicators that still need to be tracked, the Police Scorecard is designed to provide insight into many important issues in policing.

methodologySource Data


Use this Scorecard to identify issues within police departments that require the most urgent interventions and hold officials accountable for implementing solutions. For example, cities with higher rates of low level arrests could benefit most from solutions that create alternatives to policing and arrest for these offenses. In cities where police make fewer arrests overall but use more force when making arrests, communities could benefit significantly from policies designed to hold police accountable for excessive force. And cities where complaints of police misconduct are rarely ruled in favor of civilians could benefit from creating an oversight structure to independently investigate these complaints.

Here's how to start pushing for change

  • Contact Your County Sheriff, share your scorecard with them and urge them to enact policies to address the issues you've identified:

    Advocacy Tip:  Colorado's state legislature is currently considering SB21-062, a bill that would effectively ban police from arresting people for most low-level, non-violent offenses. This could reduce arrests, police use of force and jail incarceration in the state.

  • Look up your state and federal representatives below, then tell them to take action to hold police accountable in your community.

Join a team of researchers, students, data scientists, activists and organizers working to collect, analyze and use data for justice and accountability.


Create data visualizations and content that raises awareness about solutions to the issues identified by the data.
