Anyone know where I can find a good dataset on police misconducts? I'd like something similar to what RAND current has out on its policemisconduct.org site, but it looks like its pretty much a Twitter bot scraper. IE I'm pretty sure the same event is tracked at odd times throughout its disposition.
Related datasets I'm interested in would observe expenditures by police by jurisdiction/agency etc. I have seen the recent Federal Report on equipment purchases with federal grant monies; it is broken out by type of equipment and from which granting process. Is this info available somewhere besides PDF form (or how best to parse a PDF with, say, R or Python)?
Lastly, the ex-post observations of the payouts made by cities to citizens who have won misconduct suits against officers would also be of some use, certainly as a measure of "success" in the right contexts.
