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).
