About Henry A. Wallace

Henry A. Wallace (1888-1965) promoted progressive ideas in order to give the power back to the people. As the 33rd Vice President of the United States, Wallace advocated for an informed public and was committed to social justice, equality, and peace within the United States. He encouraged citizens to take a stand for civil rights and to denounce hatred and injustice. The purpose of the Henry A. Wallace Police Crime Database is to inform the public about crimes committed by nonfederal sworn law enforcement officers across the United States.
