Computerizing Your Statistics for Better Jail Management (2014)

"This article describes how Boulder County set up its report workbook in Excel, including a front-page “COMSTAT”-style dashboard for managers that displays high-level data. The system includes automated reports from the Jail Management System (JMS) and information from other sources. A point person was assigned to develop the overall system. Other staff members who are responsible for various areas of jail operation manage their own data on the appropriate worksheets. Staff members’ access to read or edit information is individually defined."
