Abstract Our story, "Policing The Police," published by The Marshall Project with on April 23, 2015, examined the use of 14141 investigations during the last three presidencies.

Included in this repo is the table of data The Marshall Project used to analyze and visualize the 14141 investigations since the law's inception. We also have a current table of pattern and practice investigations with the most current status of investigations underway, which we periodically update. If you'd like to use the data, please read on for its genealogy and caveats about its limitations.
