CompStat is a performance management tool based on the goal of continuous improvement. CompStat utilizes computer statistics and is a combination of management philosophy and organizational management tools. Individual Commanders are responsible for reporting on their efforts, effectiveness, and their results in regular CompStat meetings.
The Salt Lake City Police Department subscribes to a management process by using CompStat. This model allows the Salt Lake City Police Department to identify problems and measures the results of our problem solving activities. CompStat involves meetings between Police Command Staff, Directors, and Civilian Staff to come together and work towards a common goal. That goal is improving the quality of life for the visitors and residents of Salt Lake City.
Salt Lake City Police Department’s CompStat & Analysis Unit generates CompStat Reports every Monday and CompStat Meetings are held every other week.
The Core Components of CompStat:
- Timely and accurate information or intelligence.
- Effective tactics.
- Rapid deployment of resources.
- Relentless follow-up.
Download a 2017 weekly Compstat report for all City Council Districts, Citywide or the Rio Grande area
The Rio Grande District is defined as the area from North Temple to 700 South and State Street to I-15. However, this area overlaps other districts covered within the SLCPD CompStat Report, namely parts of Districts 3 & 4. As a result, the data contained within the Rio Grande District may also be listed in the data for other areas.
Charts may erroneously show an apparent drop in the most current data due to some cases not yet having been reported and/or recorded. For this reason, apparent decreases may not be accurate. However, any increase shown for the most recent 7 day period is a likely indicator of a rise in the category. The figures included in CompStat reports are preliminary figures for general situational awareness and trend purposes only. They do not represent the official figures of the Salt Lake City Police Department and are subject to further analysis and revision. Additionally, they are not Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) or “crime rate” numbers and are not intended to be used as such. Rather, they are a breakdown of every offense within every case that occurred during the given time periods. Although every reasonable effort is made to verify their accuracy, the accuracy of any data is subject to the constraints of the report generation process as well as the manner and format by which they are queried.
CompStat figures are generated on Monday, 1 day(s) after the closing date, which is indicated in the title. The figures are current as of the date generated.
Averages greater than or equal to 100 are rounded to a whole digit to maintain a consistent column size.
For the purposes of CompStat reports, “Criminal Sexual Assault” is defined as the following categories: all forms of sexual assault (NCIC 1100 series) with the exception of unlawful sexual intercourse (1199-1) and statutory rape (1116‐0).
