Reading Comprehension: Main Idea Questions

The passage is primarily concerned with which of the following?

This answer choice is too narrow. Compstat is described as more than merely a technological system.



The passage does not propose anything. It describes a process that occurred in the past.



While the passage mentions that the system of community surveillance was replaced, that is not the main focus of the passage, but rather emphasizes the success of CompStat.
