Welcome to URSUS

URSUS is a California Department of Justice application developed in collaboration with Bayes Impact, a San Francisco technology nonprofit.

New CA legislation requires annual reporting of certain Use of Force incidents.

This application helps law enforcement agencies determine which incidents require reporting, fill out or upload incident information, and send the report to the state.

Read the text of Assembly Bill 71, creating Government Code section 12525.2 on Use of Force reporting.
