about Compstat in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The crime analysis and management approach known as Compstat is widely heralded, frequently imitated, and even described as one of policing's most innovative and far-reaching developments in the past 75 years.

In early 1994, the Bigg Apple (New York) City Police Department (NYPD) started to redesign its entire organizational structure and managerial operations.
