Elevating Agency Performance, One State at a Time

Benchmark Analytics® understands and respects the national dialogue on police reform and the sincere commitments that state-level agencies across the country are making to use-of-force tracking and reporting — as well as early intervention, training, education and accreditation requirements.

There’s never been a more critical mandate for change. Enlist the help of Benchmark to answer the calls for transparency and accountability — and discover the power of research and advanced analytics for an evidence- based approach to police force management.

Police Reform in Action

State of New Jersey
Office of the Attorney General

In response to the Attorney General’s Excellence in Policing Initiative announced in 2019, Benchmark partnered with the Office of the AG and the state of New Jersey to create a first-in-the-nation statewide Use-of-Force Reporting Portal. This web-based portal is designed to track detailed and standardized information as a tool for analyzing use-of-force trends, including identifying racial disparities.

“…We will take further steps to build
upon our progress and deepen the well
of trust in our communities, including the
first update of our use-of-force policies
in two decades.”

New Jersey Governor
Phil Murphy

“We are committed to making New Jersey
a national leader in policing reform…”

Ex-New Jersey Attorney General
Gurbir Grewal

Taking the Lead on Officer Transparency and Accountability

Delivering Training and Tracking Results

Virginia POST

Recognizing the Impact of a Research-Based EIS

The State of Connecticut

Through the University of Connecticut Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy (IMRP), the State of Connecticut has signed on to pilot First Sign® Early Intervention in several police departments throughout the state . . . in advance of a potential statewide implementation.

The IMRP is a unique institution that aspires to be a respected and visible presence throughout the State of Connecticut — known for its ability to promote, develop and implement just, effective public policy.

Aiming for a Comprehensive, More Effective Data Infrastructure

The State of Texas

Benchmark Analytics was selected by Texas 2036 – a non-profit organization – to develop a research and analysis report that evaluates the efficacy of the systems, training and processes of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE).

By identifying significant gaps in police officer data collection, these findings will enable TCOLE to develop data-driven strategies for a long-term plan to improve public transparency, trust and safety in law enforcement.
