SPD Analytics Program Measures Up

Information Management magazine published an article touting SPD’s Data Driven Section.

“The data is unprecedented in policing — all the information we gather about our Terry stops, frisks, crisis intervention and use of force, including officer-involved shootings—we put it out publicly,’’ Maxey says.
