Police response during George Floyd protests

The aim of this project is to gather data on police responses to the protests that arose in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers. I've begun with requests for documents related to the use of facial recognition systems and militaristic crowd control tools in large cities that saw large protests. My intention is to write my own articles based on the responses, but I will also keep the requests public so that anybody interested in the documents can access them. I happily welcome anyone who wants to contribute, either by duplicating my requests and submitting them to additional agencies (which Muckrock makes easy) or by submitting requests of their own and linking them to this project. If you'd like to be added as a contributor so your requests can be linked, please contact me at tfeathers@protonmail.com.
