- To better align reported case closure rates with Uniform Crime Report standards, MCPD now excludes cases that were closed administratively. Data from FY15 and onward reflect this change.
Why is this measure important?
Measuring the performance of a police department can be challenging. However, closure rates help provide an assessment of the department's goal of managing crime. Closure rates are systematically collected through the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, allowing for long term trend analysis.
