Oakland County police departments to launch transparency websites

Oakland County is assisting local police departments with creating websites that will feature public information involving traffic stops, citations, arrests, and use of force data on a more accessible platform. 

The project is a partnership between the Oakland County Executive’s Office, the Courts and Law Enforcement Management Information Systems (CLEMIS), and Altovista Technology, who will build and maintain the websites.
