What are we measuring?
We are measuring the number of investigations cleared within one year. Reports generated by patrol officers having an active� status are evaluated by the Criminal Investigations Section applying solvability factors and ascertaining the need for latent investigation. Evaluations are based on crime elements, stolen property, physical evidence, physical injury, theft value, and crime pattern.
Why are we measuring it?
The department has responsibility for investigating crimes, identifying and apprehending offenders, recovering stolen property; gathering, documenting, and evaluating facts regarding criminal activity and assisting in the prosecution of those charged with criminal offenses. Establishing a benchmark for the clearance of cases ensures effective and efficient criminal investigations.
