While vital grassroots efforts have been made to keep track of police and carceral violence, there is no national government or civil society body tracking police-involved deaths or deaths in custody in Canada. Tracking (In)Justice is a law enforcement and criminal justice data and transparency project tracking police-involved deaths and deaths in custody across Canada. This project aims to provide access to data and analysis so individuals, organizations and communities can collectively advocate, shape policy and create accountability.
