New Research Database: The Henry A. Wallace Police Crime Database Now Available Online

From the Police Integrity Lost Blog

This week we launched The Henry A. Wallace Police Crime Database. It is a publicly available web-based searchable database of nonfederal sworn law enforcement officers who were arrested for one or more crimes during the years 2005 through 2012.

The database currently includes summary information on 8,006 criminal arrest cases involving 6,596 individual nonfederal sworn law enforcement officers, each of whom were charged with one or more crimes. The arrested officers were employed by 2,830 state, local, and special law enforcement agencies located in 1,302 counties and independent cities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Arrest case data are searchable by location that generate heat-maps and also searchable by specific criminal offenses and offense characteristics.


The database will be updated periodically, with additional cases added annually. Arrest cases from the year 2013 will be added during Fall 2017. We anticipate adding 2014 arrest data in late 2018, and so on.
