You were probably directed here from to learn a bit more about our reach and costs. We advocate for police transparency so you shouldn’t expect any less of us.

Our Reach

share-ideas-people-virus-network-nodes-copblockCop Block started as a Tumblr blog in January of 2010 and has since grown into a WordPress-based decentralized network and resource hub visited by over 4,800,000 people from 222 countries.

Cop Block is a top-ten returned result using Google for “police accountability,” “no victim no crime,” “film the police,” “police abuse,” “badges don’t grant extra rights,” and “police double standards.”

Our Costs

money-frn-bitcon-copblockBang for the buck, we are damn effective, though that isn’t too surprising as the ideas we share – that no one has extra rights, that each person is responsible for our actions, and that when there’s no victim there’s no crime – make sense. And, because our hearts are in this – we know that this is a necessary conversation to have at this point in history.

Monthly costs include:

  • $200 ($6.67/day) for IT/server costs, which is provided by our trusted friends at Liberty Web Alliance
  • $150 ($5/day) to compensate an editor(s) to review and post submissions received via (over 3,800 have been received – this is a decentralized effort after all)
  • $150 ($5/day) to compensate a housekeeper to address the ~100 messages received daily at (timely communication is key!)

Intermittent costs include:

  • compensation for graphic artists
  • shipping costs to get outreach materials where they’ll be used effectively
  • contests
