In this episode of OpenGov Champions we highlight Homicide Watch DC. It's a site that uses community-driven reporting to improve the information collected about homicide cases. Laura Amico started the site in 2010 with her husband Chris to address limitations in crime coverage Washington, D.C. By creating a repository for hard-to-reach information from both government and community sources, they changed the landscape for reporters and citizens alike.
