Killed by Police

Aggregates corporate news reports and Facebook pages of people killed by nonmilitary law enforcement officers, whether in the line of duty or not, and regardless of reason or method. Inclusion implies neither wrongdoing nor justification on the part of the person killed or the officer involved. The post merely documents the occurrence of a death.   Searchable by year beginning May 2013.  Note: This database is a work in progress, and like any open web resource, seek to corroborate any data with other sources such as the Uniform Crime Reports  database maintained by the FBI and accessible through the library website.
