With funding from the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP), the Institute for Governmental Service and Research (IGSR) at the University of Maryland conducted a six-year initiative to implement and institutionalize CompStat in Maryland. The project team was led by Dr. Laura Wyckoff, now at the U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, and included Dr. Rachel Boba Santos at Florida Atlantic University and Dr. Roberto Santos at the Port St. Lucie, Florida, Police Department. From 2009 to 2014, these experts conducted training, provided technical assistance, and developed information resources and products to introduce Maryland law enforcement agencies to a “next generation” model of CompStat and help them implement and institutionalize the model in their agencies. In its second year, the project was expanded to enhance the crime analysis capacity of Maryland law enforcement agencies. GOCCP funded the project through the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program under the following grants: BJAG-2007-1079, BJAG-2007-1106, BJAG-2007-1136, BJAG-2009-1306, BJAG-2010-1406, BJAG-2011-0001, and BJAG-2011-0035. IGSR maintains this website to provide ongoing access to the CompStat and crime analysis resources developed by the project team.
