Gascón’s first CompStat meeting in two weeks

The first of what police Chief George Gascón plans as a twice-monthly meeting to discuss crime statistics and police performance will be on Oct. 21.

The four-hour CompStat meeting is open to the public and will take place, oddly enough, at a hotel. Gascón is having difficulties with choosing a permanent spot for the meetings, and only plans on having the first meeting there (the exact hotel hasn’t been divulged yet). 

Want to see a preview of what the CompStat reports may look like? Just check out this comprehensive report on crime statistics in Mesa, Ariz., where Gascón instituted CompStat when he was chief.
