Delaware State Police Enhances DSP-STAT Program

System to map and manage crime information.

by / April 6, 2004
DOVER, Del. -- The Delaware State Police (DSP) sought to improve the efficiency of municipal services, reduce costs and make government more accountable to citizens so it chose The Project Group Inc. to provide advisory services related to the implementation of enterprise project management with Microsoft's Project 2003.

This implementation, largely supported by the Delaware First State Quality Improvement Fund, provides the continuing development of the DSP-STAT Program, which was initiated two years ago and modeled after CompStat, a system of computerizing and mapping crime data pioneered by the New York City Police Department. The STAT concept is based on the principles of accurate and timely intelligence, effective tactics and strategies, rapid deployment of resources and relentless follow-up and assessment.

"We are very pleased to capitalize on the project management expertise of The Project Group to implement a methodology within DSP that will not only facilitate our STAT metrics reporting but will also give DSP associates the training and tools to successfully manage those activities we are measuring," said Major Mark Seifert, DSP administrative officer of technology.
