News & Information from the New Orleans Police Department



Management Analytics for eXcellence (MAX) is a holistic, data-driven approach to police management. MAX replaces the Department COMSTAT meetings which were primarily focused on information sharing regarding crime trends. MAX takes that approach even further by focusing not only on crime, but all other topics for which a Commander has responsibility. The MAX meetings enable NOPD to dive deep into the systemic issues of crime, management, community policing, and risk management to develop solutions aimed at the root of the issue. To that end, the MAX meeting includes Lieutenants and Sergeants who have responsibility at the unit level in creating or sustaining that change. MAX facilitates the Superintendent’s vision of creating a more informed Department from the Superintendent down to each and every officer.
