Prevent and Minimize Crime with CompStat
What is CompStat?
CompStat, short for computer statistics, or comparative statistics, is a strategic management philosophy used by police to approach crime reduction. CompStat provides a unique methodology for collecting, analyzing, and mapping crime data and other essential police performance measures on a regular basis. The CompStat model emphasizes accountability at all levels within the organization and emphasizes the rapid identification of problems with creative solutions. CompStat tends to focus on street‐level and high-volume crime, and drives short‐term accountability to emerging crime problems.
Does the CompStat Model Really Reduce Crime?
CompStat is a proven, effective police management system that can significantly reduce crime and be deployed on a rather low budget. CompStat helped New York City achieve a whopping 64.5% decrease for Index offenses (homicide, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson) from 1994 to 2009, compared to a 19.4% decrease nationwide.
