Benchmarking

Your data in, better policing out.


Data helps drive better, more informed decision making. With this in mind, the IACP and IACP Net have joined forces with support from the COPS Office to create the new Law Enforcement Benchmarking and Performance Analytics Portal. Borne out of the IACP’s Midsize Agencies Section, and inspired by the Overland Park, Kansas, Benchmark Cities initiative, the Benchmark Portal is your new resource for conducting comparative analyses with peer agencies and is free for participating agencies.

Input data on a variety of variables, from agency demographics to crime and arrest rates, and see graphic visualizations of where your agency stands relative to similarly sized agencies.  Thinking of starting a new program or adding new specialized staff? The Benchmark Portal can help you identify and connect with agencies that may have done similar work.
