This Project provides a tool - accessible to prosecutors, defense attorneys, journalists, and

the public - for tracking court orders finding that a police officer broke the law.

 

The court orders are known as "suppression orders" because improper police conduct is most often recognized when a court "suppresses" evidence that was recovered through the improper conduct.

Tracking the information in these suppression orders will allow us to identify officers who are repeat offenders and police departments with troubling practices.
