Former cop and current Borough President Eric Adams thinks that there are lessons from CompStat that can be brought to all of city government, and he’s deploying those ideas in Borough Hall, now. That’s all according to an interview in Brooklyn Daily.
Adams welcomed attendees to Technically Brooklyn’s Diversity In/Tech event at the Navy Yard last month.
EA: We’ve already started using the CompStat model at Borough Hall — centralizing data and resources, and cross-referencing them to get people and services where they’re needed. I’m meeting soon with some of Brooklyn’s education and tech giants to work on designing a mapping system to track services and direct resources in a data-based way instead of this guessing game we’ve been playing.
BE: What sort of services would you monitor? Things like snow removal?
EA: I had a conversation with Mayor DeBlasio the other day and talked to him about using the CompStat model to improve the efficiency of city agencies, and he actually mentioned snow removal. I think he realizes that it’s time to move out of the Ice Age and into the Tech age for snow removal. The technology is there. The problem is that in many city agencies the mindset isn’t there — yet.
