Earlier this month, we published a post about The Guardian’s “The Counted” project, which is an interactive reporting project aimed at tracking all police killings in the United States, and seeks to serve as a resource for families to share their stories and press for change. (See “The Counted” project here). The site also features a database for killings. The Guardian encourages submissions by people, noting-
The US government has no comprehensive record of the number of people killed by law enforcement.
So the Guardian has embarked on a special project – to work from an inaccurate standard toward a more perfect accounting, and tell the stories of people killed by police. But we need your help.
Do you have information about an officer-involved death that the public deserves to know? This is the place to share the truth about police killings. Send us your tips, images, video and more – and we’ll use it in our reporting.
Information regarding a victim of police homicide can be entered directly on this page. Additionally, the Guardian invites members of the public to contribute to “The Counted” in the following ways: send a tip via the interactive, firstname.lastname@example.org; join the new Facebook community; tweet at @thecounted; or contact The Guardian confidentially using the private PGP key send your files anonymously via the SecureDrop system.
