A step toward creating an impartial, comprehensive and searchable national database of people killed during interactions with law enforcement
Here are a couple tips: First, we only collect data for incidents between January 1, 2000 and today's date. Get as precise a street address as possible, and plug that and the city and state into Google Maps to get a zip code. Then you can plug in the zip code at www.naco.org/counties/pages/citysearch.aspx to get the county. Getting the address as precise as possible is crucial because soon we will soon be able to compare things like demographics and socio-economic status of neighborhoods against the U.S. Census zip code data: www.census.gov. Try your zip code: http://zipskinny.com.
Also please, if you run across any errors, repeats, or needed clarifications, use this corrections form: http://bit.ly/Z4HDOm It's only necessary to fill in the parts that need fixing. And finally, it takes a couple of weeks to move from the fact-checking queue to the database, so I appreciate your patience. Thank you, D. Brian.
