Developers have launched a new app that will log every single police killing in this country.
Archives + Absences, created by Josh Begley, is intended to keep the public aware of the ongoing police violence happening in America. The app will notify its users where the shooting occurred and the name of the person that was killed. Last year alone, nearly 1,000 people were killed due to police brutality and in most cases, the police were not disciplined for their actions.
The data will be sourced from The Guardian’s The Counted database, Elite Daily reports.
Begley also runs Officers Involved, a website designed to keep track of all police-related deaths in America, and @DroneStream, a Twitter account that documents all drone strikes carried out by the United States.
Archives + Absences is available for free in the App Store.
