Elevating Agency Performance, One State at a Time
Benchmark Analytics® understands and respects the national dialogue on police reform — as well as 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 reform — 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. Watch the video.
“…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
“We are committed to making New Jersey
a national leader in policing reform…”

Tracking Officer Training and Certification
In partnership with the Office of the Attorney General Department of Law, Benchmark was selected to be the provider of record for Colorado POST’s agency training and certification management system.
Specifically, we are responsible for implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS) to track the employment, training and certification of Colorado’s estimated 40,000 law enforcement personnel throughout the state.
Taking the Lead on Officer Transparency and Accountability
New Hampshire POST
Developed in response to the Governor’s Executive Order on Law Enforcement, Accountability, Community and Transparency, Benchmark was selected to implement a statewide capture of employment, training and disciplinary history — across 200+ law enforcement agencies.
In partnership with the state’s POST Council, we offer a configurable Learning Management System (LMS) designed to meet the unique needs and complexities of all state-wide agencies — with fully automated certification management.
Advancing Internal Affairs Tracking and Reporting
In response to the Minnesota Police Accountability Act of 2020, Benchmark has partnered with Minnesota POST for implementation of a statewide portal to capture internal affairs misconduct complaints across 400+ law enforcement agencies.
This comprehensive project also includes utilization of our Learning Management System (LMS) to track all mandatory yearly training for every officer within the state.
Delivering Training and Tracking Results
The Commonwealth of Virginia’s training and standards organization, the Department of Criminal Justice Services, selected Benchmark Analytics to implement a customized statewide training management system.
Benchmark is set to implement a Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver and track training to the more than 20,000 law enforcement agents through the state.
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.
