Complaints Against Police

As part of the Philadelphia Police Department's (PPD) accountability processes, PPD publishes three datasets: The Complaints Against Police (CAP) dataset documents the civilian complaints alleging police misconduct; the CAP Findings dataset provides demographic details of the police officer involved, the allegations, and the status of the PPD's Internal Affairs Division's investigation of and findings (if available) about the allegation; and the Complainant Demographics dataset shows the race, sex, and age of each person who filed a complaint against a police officer by complaint number.
