Every Three Seconds Unlocking Police Data on Arrests

Arrest Trends Project Square V3


The launch of Arrest Trends marks Vera’s most recent effort to reduce the criminal justice system’s footprint—by unlocking key policing data and, in doing so, elevating the narrative of overreliance on arrests and the need for viable alternatives. In this report, readers will find information about the need for greater access to policing data, an overview of the Arrest Trends tool as well as several initial findings gleaned from it, and future directions for this work. Read the report to learn more, and explore the interactive Arrest Trends tool at http://arresttrends.vera.org.
