What is COMPSTAT?

COMPSTAT: CompStat or COMPSTAT (short for COMPuter STATistics or COMParative STATistics) is the name given to the New York City Police Department’s accountability process and has since been replicated in many other departments. COMPSTAT is a management philosophy or organizational management tool for police departments, roughly equivalent to Six Sigma or TQM, and is not a computer system or software package. 

COMPSTAT is a system-wide collaborative approach to collecting, validating, and reporting strategic and operational performance data for business management purposes.  COMPSTAT aids CDCR’s ability to monitor program functions, identify areas of concern, and employ data-driven decision making processes to correct deficiencies.  The responsibilities and functionality of COMPSTAT have increased considerably since the inception of its current computerized configuration in 2008.  COMPSTAT currently produces five regularly scheduled data products:

13-Month COMPSTAT Report:  These summary statistical reports are published monthly and span the most recent 13 months of data collection. 

CDCR’s Annual Performance Measures Report:  This legislatively mandated annual report contains over 1,300 data elements covering a rolling three years of the Department’s fiscal, programmatic, and operational activities.

​Senate Bill 601 (SB601) Statistical Reports:  These brief statistical reports are posted on CDCR’s internet site on a quarterly basis for each adult institution and contain, among other information: inmate population statistics, staff position and vacancy information, overtime and sick leave usage hours, deaths, behavior incidents, inmate appeals information, contraband seizures, and figures for rehabilitative programs. SB601 reports are linked under Reports and Statistics on each adult facility landing page.
