What happens when I submit a photograph?

The next step after a photograph of an officer has been submitted is to match it to the correct badge number, name, and OpenOversight ID (a unique identifier in our system). Volunteers sort through submitted images by first confirming that officers are present in each photograph, and then by matching each photograph to the officer it depicts.

Please consider creating an account and logging in so that we can keep track of the images you've submitted and contact you with any questions.
