About RAND Benchmark

RAND Benchmark is an online application that enables law enforcement agencies to evaluate officer and staff member performance outcomes fairly and accurately by comparing outcomes to a customized group of peers working under similar conditions. It can be used to evaluate any performance outcome that is important to your department, such as traffic stop patterns (e.g., duration, search results, uses-of-force), frequency of citizen feedback, or other quantifiable outcomes.
