Scorecard on California PDs

A new state-wide “scorecard” in California rated only one police department an “A” grade while 88 cities got an “F” as reported here. Criteria included violent crime clearance rates, sustaining of citizen complaints, and use of force. Critics note several flaws in the data and rating system, but also “When you see really, really large discrepancies, which is not a scientific term, but where the difference in the use of force between one jurisdiction and the next is three or four to one, it really tells you that they should look at what they’re doing.”
