Introducing Our Advanced Police Force Management and
Early Intervention System

The Benchmark Blueprint is a fully automated, all-in-one solution that provides a comprehensive, holistic approach to managing, developing and growing your department and the police officers in your charge. Our innovative Blueprint:

  • Captures and organizes all officer performance data in one platform
  • Analyzes data for “first signs” of need for preventative early intervention
  • Provides customized officer support with specific-case action steps

A Breakthrough Solution for Law Enforcement Agencies of All Sizes, Challenges and Communities

The Benchmark Blueprint is an innovative, multi-dimensional system that:

  • Includes three analytics-driven, integrated platforms created to maximize the efficiency and integrity of your police force . . . and minimize your risk and exposure to rising liability costs
  • Allows for configuration to accommodate the specific needs and policies of your agency — and your collective bargaining agreement
  • Features a software-enabled, security-protected platform that is instantly accessible, simple to use and easy to navigate

Our Comprehensive System Protects All Policing Stakeholders

We have configured our research-based platforms to help protect law enforcement agencies from officer misconduct and exposure to rising liability costs — along with associated public criticism, media attack and strained community relations. Our analytics-driven solutions:

  • Comply with the body of standards provided by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)
  • Incorporate the best practices and elements of the ethics toolkit developed by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)
  • Align with and surpass the performance guidelines on officer conduct recommended by the Department of Justice (DOJ)

BMS | Benchmark Management System

With BMS, Benchmark works with you to develop a top-to-bottom police force management system that:

  • Serves as your single-source solution with full workflow management capabilities, or can be integrated with your existing systems — there’s no need to buy separate Use of Force, Internal Affairs, Performance Evaluation and other systems . . . BMS does it all
  • Identifies what data is important to ensure the integrity and safety of all police officers, units and supervisors
  • Configures to comply with your collective bargaining agreement
  • Delivers an efficient, effective platform created to provide a 360° holistic view of every officer in your department

BMS is a proactive management tool that features seven information categories designed to identify a wide range of activities and practices — not simply a system to focus on problematic behavior.


First Sign Early Intervention

By leveraging the work completed in the Benchmark Management System, we activated the power of advanced analytics to develop First Sign — a revolutionary tool that:

  • Offers you a first-of-its-kind, preventative early intervention system
  • Analyzes cumulative officer data to indicate those police officers successfully on track — and, importantly, early detection of off-track behavior before it becomes a real problem
  • Transforms risk management in policing by significantly reducing your exposure to rising liability costs

First Sign is preventative by design: Benchmark understands that intervention based upon simple, threshold-based triggers alone is not the right strategy — context, patterns of problematic behavior and officer history are what matter . . . and what make our system better.


C.A.R.E. | Case Action Response Engine

Once off-track behavior has been identified in First Sign, Benchmark expedites thoughtful and effective early intervention with C.A.R.E. — a proactive, targeted support program that:

  • Features research-based case management modules for officer-specific interventions
  • Provides best practices proven to be most effective for different levels of intervention
  • Facilitates the planning process with a template of actionable steps and goals

Ultimately, C.A.R.E. allows supervisors to develop a well thought out, meaningful plan of action for individual officers to help ensure that no one in your charge is falling through the cracks.
