Crime Stats and the Hidden Unknown: Overreporting

December 2, 2020 | 1-2pm Eastern

(Recorded version to the right.)

With law enforcement crime statistics under heightened scrutiny today, police agencies are finding themselves in the news for having inaccurate crime data.  Sometimes this scrutiny includes allegations of falsified stats, leaving the agency in a position of having to defend what happened and to determine the complex causes of the inaccuracies.

During this webinar we will review these issues, tell you about our audits and what we typically find.  We will leave you with more knowledge than you had just an hour earlier. Free.
