The Spokane Police Department will be holding its second public Compstat meeting on Wednesday, March 23 at 9:30 am in the City Council Chambers (808 W Spokane Falls Blvd). This is a follow-up of sorts to the first public Compstat meeting that took place on February 17.
What’s Compstat? This the name for the monthly meeting of the SPD leadership team to discuss the latest crime trends, significant arrests and investigations. Compstat reports are posted here every week for public viewing.
During the March 23 briefing, you’ll get an idea of the SPD’s efforts to address crime, quality-of-life issues, and community outreach efforts made in the prior month. Also included in the presentation will be crime “hotspots” that were identified and efforts taken to address crime in those areas, significant arrests, and any other significant events or investigations that impacted Spokane in the previous month.
The precinct captains, Investigative Captain, Assistant Chief, Law Enforcement Director, and other SPD leaders will be in attendance to provide reviews of the past months’ crime trends. That makes it an excellent opportunity for you to see firsthand what the police do on a regular basis to keep them safe and to keep reducing crime in Spokane.
Please note that certain ongoing investigations might be left out of the presentation due to the sensitive nature of the information surrounding the event.
