Death by Law Enforcement, Oakland, Ca | Anti-Eviction Mapping Project

See our map of killings by San Francisco Law Enforcement here.

We have gathered our data from a variety of sources including a list of Officer Involved Shootings from the Oakland Police Department, news sources, and crowdsourced projects. Because we have come across multiple deaths not reported by the OPD, there are most likely many more deaths by law enforcement yet to be exhumed. Not all police related deaths are listed as such; some are attributed to other parties, such as a companion co-charged in a crime with the deceased. If you know of a death that we did not report, email us to report it and we can add it to our map.

A US map of deaths by police created by Fatal Encounters can be found here. They have a comparative crowdsourced database to search through on their site.

Deadspin has also been compiling data on police shootings, which can be seen in their database here.
