For 30 years, groups of ordinary people from communities across the country have come together to resist police violence by documenting incidents of abuse. Eye-witness and video accounts from thousands of observers over the years have boldly challenged the actions and credibility of the cops. From its inception as a tactic in maintaining slavery to its current role in the repression of political movements and marginalized people, the very institution of policing is being challenged like never before.

Join us for a national gathering to share and build our collective work, and to celebrate 30 years of Copwatch and other organizations involved in the struggle to document police conduct and defend our communities and movements against police violence and abuse.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the gathering will be pushed back to 2021. In the meantime, please fill out this survey to share your contact information, indicate what you’d like to see at this convening, and let us know a little about the work you are doing.

PEOPLE'S DATABASE FOR

Berkeley Copwatch is excited to announce that the People’s Database is finally ready to be downloaded and used by Copwatch groups and other organizations working to track police misconduct. This free tool could be a game-changer for organizers who want to ensure that the everyday abuses committed by police officers are recorded, archived and able to be used to alert our communities when particular officers or police practices threaten the pubic safety.

The groups that make up BOC are working together to get water, food, sanitation resources, and other basic supplies to people who are living outside. If you want to get involved in these mutual aid efforts, pleas...

How are people supposed to shelter in place when the cops tear down their homes on a regular basis?


This citation is from an incident last week where Berkeley cops took a man's belongings, threw them all over the sidewalk, then gave him a ticket for littering.


The two cops took a bag of feces from the man (all businesses in Berkeley are closed, which means no bathrooms for the homeless) and threw it on the ground, causing it t...
