Since 1940, LDF has worked to advance fair and lawful policing practices across the nation. Today—nearly a century later—we are still engaged in the fight to secure unbiased and accountable policing. In 2015, the Institute launched its Policing Reform Campaign to transform policing culture and practices, eliminate racial bias and profiling in policing, and end police violence against citizens. Through the campaign, TMI and other LDF staff advocate in targeted locations to realize unbiased and accountable policing by advancing laws, policies, and practices at the national, state, and local levels.
