The Transparency and Accountability Project (TAP) is a volunteer-run, self-funded, police accountability website. Our team is made up of activists, students and researchers who are passionate about creating police accountability projects. Each person listed below has contributed greatly to our success.  If you’d like to join our team, feel free to contact Zakir Khan. We’d love to have you join us!

He also serves as the Legal Redress Committee Co-Chair for the NAACP Chapter of Albany/Corvallis. He has previously held roles at the Council on American-Islamic Relations – Los Angeles, the Center for Constitutional Rights and Asian-Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus. He can be reached at zakir [at] taproject.org or @muzzakh.

  • Kryztopher is a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. His dissertation research focuses on the utilization of wearable biosensors to predict exertional heat illness potential in real time in working population that routinely perform manual labor in hot environments. He is also currently employed at Lone Peak Conservation Center in Draper, Utah as an ergonomic consultant performing biomechanical analysis on work tasks executed by wildland firefighters. Kryz lives his life according to the theory of entropy, which states that any system, whether it be mechanical, biological, or social, tends to move towards a state of chaos. In this case, chaos manifests itself in the form of victims of unchecked police incidents. He believes this project is one of many ways he can play his part in reducing the chaos in this world. Kryz can be reached at kryztophert [at] gmail.com.
