Quick Summary

This 2007 report outlined how, as parole and probation agencies heed the call to manage for results, they are looking to models like the New York City Police Department’s Compstat program.

You Get What You Measure: Compstat for Community Corrections described how the selection of performance indicators, the development of information tracking and reporting systems, and the adoption of accountability mechanisms like “live audits” can improve the public safety returns on taxpayer dollars. The result is less crime, fewer victims and offenders who become law-abiding citizens.
