Crime Analysis is a systematic, analytical process directed at providing timely and pertinent information relative to crime patterns and trend correlations to assist the operational and administrative personnel in planning the deployment of resources for the prevention and suppression of criminal activities.

The Crime Analysis Unit supports the operational elements and the administration of the Police Department by collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on crime pattern detection, crime-suspect correlation, target profile analysis, and forecasting crime potential, trends, and patterns.

The Crime Analysis Unit integrates service calls into the department’s geographical information system.  The Crime Analysis Unit completes monthly crime and traffic reports for the Department.
