Our work shows that police disproportionately target Black and other marginalized people in stops, arrests, and use of force. Meanwhile, police are increasingly called upon to respond punitively to problems that are unrelated to public safety, like mental health crises and homelessness, which too often leads to trauma, bodily harm, overcriminalization, and incarceration.
See also the Police and Policing section of our Research Library, a curated collection of over 200 academic and policy reports on the subject.
