The Lewis Registry

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

The folks from the USC Safe Communities Institute stopped by to tell us all about the new LEWIS Registry. The LEWIS Registry is a crowdsourced public database for police officers who have been fired or resigned during an investigation of their behavior.

In addition to the front, public-facing, end there is a backend for use by Law Enforcement.

The team at SCI is committed to making their processes as transparent as possible, the data will be publicly verifiable. This could be one step toward better governance in policing nationwide. The lack of transparent data is huge, as there is no national standard. This open data platform can be one step toward transparency and accountability in policing.
