Community Operations

Compstat

Compstat is a managerial review that employs accountability to promote effectiveness, problem solving, internal/external communication and coordination. The unit has evolved from the widely known New York City Police Department’s Compstat process.

Compstat’s function is to be an effective quality assurance / performance improvement mechanism – tracking and improving the overall Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office delivery of service to the communities it serves. Compstat facilitates coordination between the districts/units of the Sheriff’s Office and encourages problem solving and identifies areas of improvement to enhance operations.

The forum enables Management/Command to discuss what key issues are affecting their operations, how they determined them, what action is to be taken, and how they will measure success. It is an informational-sharing, information-gathering and educational forum all in one. The process encourages a cooperative and positive teambuilding effort amongst all units within the Sheriff’s office.
