The Spokane Police Department is committed to reducing crime using proven, data driven crime and offender analysis. Our CompStat (Computer Statistics) model identifies the most active offenders, their criminal behavior and the location in which crimes are occurring. Based on this analysis we direct uniformed and investigative resources to neighborhoods in order to quickly bring offenders to justice.
Note: In order to provide more useful statistics that will promote constructive discussion, measured planning and more informed policing, the Spokane Police Department (SPD) is switching to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) from the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program.
With the switch to NIBRS from UCR, the Spokane Police Department is preparing for a temporary gap without our weekly CompStat Report. SPD is working to build a new CompStat report that will be NIBRS based, but anticipate it being several months out before completion.
