First-Line Supervision Under Compstat and Community Policing - Lessons from Six Agencies

Over the last 25 years, Compstat and community policing have emerged as powerful movements in U.S. police reform. Despite their importance, there are virtually no studies on how they work together when implemented in the same police organization. This report, the third in a series studying this co-implementation issue, focuses on front-line supervision.
