Statistics Canada is releasing today the Juristat article "The Canadian Police Performance Metrics Framework: Standardized indicators for police services in Canada."
This Juristat article provides an overview of the Canadian Police Performance Metrics Framework (CPPMF), developed in collaboration with the Canadian policing community and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. The CPPMF responds to a need for national standards regarding measurement of police performance.
The article includes a review of the literature on performance measurement, an examination of how Canadian police services are currently using data in public performance reports, and the results of a consultation of Canadian police services on measuring police performance on the basis of data availability and information needs. Preliminary results from a pilot project on the feasibility of collecting uniform calls for service data from Canadian police services are also provided.
The article "The Canadian Police Performance Metrics Framework: Standardized indicators for police services in Canada" is now available as part of the publication Juristat (85-002-X).
