State attorney general’s office puts information on use-of-force incidents online

Interview with Attorney General Gurbir Grewal

After years of public pushback, the state Attorney General’s office is soft-launching a new online dashboard, tracking use of force by all 38,000 of New Jersey’s police officers. It’s a digital catalogue with details on each incident dating to October 2020, when the state began electronically collecting data, including the name of the officer and the age, race and gender of the person against whom force was used.

The state is asking the public to test the site and send feedback. It’s part of a larger plan to boost transparency and advance police reforms.
