Washington Post: Pulitzer Prize-winning Fatal Force Database updated with federal IDs of police departments involved in fatal shootings

Washington Post: Pulitzer Prize-winning Fatal Force Database updated with federal IDs of police departments involved in fatal shootings. “The Washington Post’s Fatal Force Database, which has logged every fatal shooting in the United States by a police officer in the line of duty since 2015, has been updated to include federal IDs (formally called Originating Agency Identifiers, or ORIs) of police departments involved in fatal shootings. This update allows users to more easily combine Washington Post data with external sources of policing data, which typically include federal IDs as a standard identifier for departments.”
