Support Unsealed, KQED’s Police Records Project
For decades, California had been one of the most secretive states regarding police misconduct and use of force.
But within hours of the passing of SB 1421, KQED spearheaded a coalition of over 30 news organizations to obtain, investigate and report on previously secret documents detailing police misconduct and use of force. Since then, KQED has published over 70 stories and has seen charges dropped and officers fired. But there’s still much work to do.
Your gift will directly support the Unsealed project:
- Investigative reporting on thousands of previously secret police files
- The Unsealed podcast, now in coproduction by KQED and NPR
- California’s first statewide public database of police use of force and misconduct records, now under development in partnership with Stanford University
- Public education campaigns
