What is CompStat?
Compstat stands for 'Computer Statistics' dealing specifically with crime. It was developed in the 1990s at the New York Police Department to help reduce crime. It was found to be an effective way to accurately track crime and use the information to deploy officers to address it in timely manner.
Compstat is a performance management system that is used to reduce crime and achieve other police department goals. It emphasizes information-sharing, responsibility and accountability, and improving effectiveness.
