California Authorities Are Failing to Track and Prevent Abuse of Police Databases


For years, we’ve pushed for better data to track when California cops misuse CLETS (California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System) data.

We have filed request after request for misuse data under the California Public Records Act. We’ve sent letters, met with staff, assisted journalists, and spoken up during public meetings to demand state officials overseeing these databases take some sort of action. This is the third report we’ve published on misuse data.

Yet state officials have made zero progress in addressing widespread database misconduct. No hearings on misuse have been held, no disciplinary actions have been taken, and the horror stories continue to mount.
