"This report from the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) examines the impact of Compstat on police performance and accountability. Compstat is a “performance management system that is used to reduce crime and achieve other police department goals.” The system has four core components and emphasizes information-sharing, responsibility and accountability, and improving effectiveness. The components are: 1) timely and accurate information or intelligence; 2) rapid deployment of resources; 3) effective tactics; and 4) relentless follow-up. The report has three major sections. The first section details what Compstat is and how it was developed and adopted, first by the New York City Police Department and subsequently by other law enforcement and non-law enforcement agencies. The second section of the report discusses what is known about Compstat in today’s criminal justice system. The third section of the report discusses the future of Compstat and presents the views of agency officials on their plans for the use of Compstat"--NCJRS website.

This report by the Constitution Project's blue ribbon Task Force on Detainee Treatment is the most comprehensive, bipartisan investigation into the detention and treatment of suspected terrorists yet published. The product of more than two years of research, analysis and deliberation by the Task Force members and staff, it provides the American people with a broad understanding of what is known, and what may still be unknown, about the past and current treatment of suspected terrorists detained by the U.S. government during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, and across multiple geographic theatres, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantánamo and the so-called "black sites." Its conclusion: "It is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture" after September 11, 2001 "and that the nation's highest officials bore ultimate responsibility for it."

"The APEX Assessment Tools Protocol includes the APEX Screener, the APEX Organizational Profile, and the APEX Inventory. These tools provide correctional agencies with processes to assess their internal and external environments, their readiness for change, and their performance on key indicators from the APEX Public Safety Model domains. These self-assessment tools are designed specifically for correctional agencies to use in a variety of ways: (1) sequentially: Screener--Organizational Profile--Inventory, (2) one or two of the tools as chosen by the agency, (3) as a checkup to see how the agency is performing, and (4) as a pretest or posttest to measure progress as a whole organization or by one department only. The assessment tool reports are designed to guide discussions of the results and how the agency wants to use the results to create a performance improvement plan"--Page 39.

This second edition of Terrorism provides an overview of the terrorist incidents and preventions designated by the FBI as having taken place in the United States and its territories during the years 2002 through 2005 and that are matters of public record. This publication does not include those incidents which the Bureau classifies under criminal rather than terrorism investigations. In addition, the report discusses major FBI investigations overseas and identifies significant events--including legislative actions, prosecutorial updates, and program developments--relevant to U.S. counterterrorism efforts. The report concludes with an "In Focus" article summarizing the history of the FBI's counterrorism program.
