At the Stanford Computational Policy Lab, we publish academic papers and general-interest pieces on a variety of issue at the nexus of public policy, computer science, and statistics.
Seed Grants
We invite mayors, police chiefs, and district attorneys to partner with the Stanford Computational Policy Lab (SCPL) to achieve impactful, data-driven criminal justice reform. Partners will work with Stanford faculty and a pool of experienced SCPL data scientists and software engineers to implement technologically supported interventions.
Filing Public Records Requests
We've obtained millions of law enforcement records by filing hundreds of public records requests in jurisdictions across the United States. Requesting public records is an often confusing and frustrating undertaking. To help others navigate this process, we've put together a short guide to help you get the information you’re entitled to.
