Best Practice:
The Digital Documentation Center of the Police of Nicaragua (CEDOC) seeks, compiles and disseminates information on public security with the collaboration of other governmental institutions and nongovernmental organizations. The Statistical Yearbook of the National Police reported by CEDOC covers police administrative data and several indicators on crime trends in the country.
