The National Police Accountability Project is a national organization dedicated to holding police and correctional officers accountable to professional and constitutional standards. Its 550+ members litigate the thousands of cases of police and correctional officer misconduct that do not make national headlines. Its Heartland Police Accountability Academy is a year-long training and support program for attorneys in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota to build skills and confidence in bringing civil rights cases. The program will focus on providing attorneys with the nuts and bolts of civil rights litigation for cases against individual police correctional officers and their employers.
