Citizen Complaints vs. Cincinnati Police Officers, 2009-2014

Data Source: data.cincinnati-oh.gov Tool: Google Sheets

There are some quick comments worth making about this dataset. First, I’m not 100% certain of the difference between “Excessive Force” and “Use of Force” complaints, nor am I sure what determinations are made in the categorization procedures. Additionally, I’ve grouped similar data categories together (i.e., all Excessive Force complaints are grouped together, as are all Improper Search complaints and Use of Force complaints). I may break this dataset down in different ways in the future, as it’s actually pretty robust for such a small sheet.
