Raheem is the independent online service for
reporting police in the United States.
According to the Department of Justice, more than 95 percent
of people who experience police violence do not report it
because most police departments require residents to file a complaint in-person, during business hours, and within 90 days.
Raheem builds tech-solutions that decentralize the process of reporting police so that communities can easily report and track officer behavior and then leverage the open data to advance policies that shrink the role of the police and invest in safer alternatives. Raheem's mission is to end police terror against
Black people by making police behavior visible and accountable.
