Search Warrant Data

We are looking to collect information on all search warrants executed at all major cities throughout the United States. Our first step is to request the search warrant data of the largest of every state as a foundation and to understand the difficulties of requesting this data for every state. From there, we hope to map the data using geographic analysis tools, and provide the data to the public.

Tables and columns from government owned databases

This project is to request lists of databases, their tables, and the columns from databases that exist within national, state, county and city agencies throughout the US. This data will be used in the submission of future requests for information with those databases. I hope that the information obtained from these requests will be particularly useful to Open Data communities by providing them data that would otherwise be inaccessible, which leads to bigger and better community-run projects!
