#204 Citizens Police Data Project
After a decade-long legal battle, records of police misconduct in Chicago are now public information.
For the past six months, the Invisible Institute has been building a set of publicly useful interfaces to these data called the Citizens Police Data Project, and working with investigative reporters to tell the stories contained within.
On the Table: What can civic technology do for Chicago?
For the Chicago Community Trust’s On the Table event, Derek Eder and Robert Friedman will host a discussion as a Chi Hack Night breakout group. Anyone is welcome to join! We’ll be covering the following questions:
- How can civic technology improve the political process, accountability and transparency? Is open data enough?
- How can data and technology be used to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged Chicagoans? Who are we building our civic apps with?
- How do we influence the creation of fair and ethical policies around the collection and protection of personal data?
