Blank Check: How local agencies fund themselves with fines and fees

Share Embed Help

Help fund a national look at how local police departments use fines to fund their everyday operations. Our goal is to raise $5,000, which would let us file requests to agencies in the hundred largest cities in the United States.

  • $2,500 would be used by the Sunlight Foundation to dedicate research time for the project.
  • $1,200 would be used to fund processing costs, such as stamps, envelopes, and credit card fees.
  • $1,300 would be used to fund payments to agencies that assess fees for processing the requests.

If we raise more than our target amount, we’ll use it fund more requests and dedicate more time to analysis.

Backed by Phil Mocek, Emma Best, Bob Woodbury, Peter Haight, and 12 others.

$1,130.00 raised out of $5,000.00.
