1.) The benefits of intelligence-driven prosecution for crime stoppers and the public are that it records citywide crimes and displays the location of crimes and arrests on the map (Laudon, K. C., & Laudon, J. P pg.228). Furthermore, CompStat records the time and date of all the reported crime, arrests and complaints that have been made within that week (Laudon, K. C., & Laudon, J. P pg.228). Another benefit that CompStat provides is that it releases the hotspots for crime in the city. It also provides other forms of information to assist commanders and NYPD’s senior leadership to recognise patterns and movements that may lead to the suspect of the targeted crime (Laudon, K. C., & Laudon, J. P pg.228). The CompStat also helps in dispatching more foot patrols to high- crime areas in the city. Therefore, there are multiple benefits of intelligence-driven prosecution.
