HAMPTON CORNERS - Cattaraugus County Lieutenant David A. Schuman was among the attendees from 24 counties who participated in a recent information session held by The New York State Sheriffs' Association on the Association's CompStat Project.
"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, the 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," he said.
The information sessions were intended to provide the sheriffs with enough information about CompStat to determine whether they would like to apply to participate in the 18-month program. The CompStat Project is funded through the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) by an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG).
