Security Force Monitor supports human rights researchers, litigators and investigative journalists working to make state security forces more accountable.

We are a non-profit research group that analyzes thousands of public records to create a simple searchable database of the commanders and the command structures, locations, and areas of operations of security force units and investigate their potential connections to alleged human rights violations.
