EXCESSIVE FORCE | FALSE ARREST | UNWARRANTED SEARCHES | FALSIFICATION OF EVIDENCE
One step closer
to ending police brutality
We believe there is no police reform without the voice of the people. Since our inception in 2017, Missin Peace has been deeply committed to creating a public platform for the underrepresented to share stories of police brutality and ensuring change-makers hear those stories.
Missin Peace collects formal complaints (records often buried in internal databases) to make the data publicly available to investigative journalists, hiring managers, and civil rights attorneys.
Ready for change? We can help.
Here’s how your addition to Missin Peace helps:
- Connect the dots for prosecutors to win more cases involving police brutality.
- Shed light on the undisclosed truth for thorough news reports.
- Expose officers with a history of problems and stop them from moving to a new position without a paper trail.
