Rockland County Sheriff’s Office Chief William Barbera was among the attendees from 24 counties who participated in an information session held by the New York State Sheriffs’ Association on the Association’s CompStat Project in Albany, according to a news release.
“CompStat is an approach to law enforcement that combines the concepts of intelligence-led policing, real-time data analysis, and command accountability,” said Ed Hartnett, director of the association’s CompStat Project. “The New York State Sheriffs’ Association will work with up to 12 sheriffs’ offices over the next 18 months to help them integrate CompStat principles into their organizations.”
The sesssions were intended to provide enough information about CompStat to determine whether they would like to apply to participate in the 18-month program, the release said. The CompStat Project is funded through the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services by an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant.
The association is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1934 to assist sheriffs in the efficient and effective delivery of services to the public. More information at the New York state Sheriff’s Association.
