COMPSTAT stands for Comparative Statistics. In a weekly meeting of police command
staff, divisional supervisors and other personnel, all parties discuss recent Part I criminal
activity and proposed strategies to address the situation.
Each meeting covers a three week period, and rotates between the three patrol divisions
North, Southwest, Southeast. All three Divisions provide maps, tracking activity in seven
different crime types, but only one division presents per week.
Other divisions also report - Criminal Investigations Division, Crime Reduction Team,
Special Investigations, Gang Violence Task Force. Those divisions reports are not included
in this report because they may contain sensitive law enforcement information.
