News in Baltimore: CitiStat: "CITISTAT What is CitiStat? CitiStat is an accountability tool based on the ComStat program pioneered in the New York City Police Department by Jack Maple. CompStat, utilizing computer pin mapping and weekly accountability sessions, helped the NYPD dramatically reduce crime and is employed today by several police departments around the world. Mayor O'Malley is convinced that this same process can be used, not only for crime, but for every City agency from Public Works to Health. In short, CitiStat is how the Mayor runs the City. Strategies are developed and employed, managers held accountable, and results measured --not yearly, quarterly, or monthly, but week to week. "
