Project:

BadgeWatch.org

Overview: The open-source project for modernizing police complaints in the Miami / South Florida area. Florida is one of 12 states that offer public police complaints. In response to a local journalist creating a spreadsheet of cops based on Civilian Investigated Panel public data we built a search tool which in 3 weeks got 1,500 users. Today we continue this effort of looking at process improvement through software and UX/UI.
