The class uses real examples, hands-on lessons and computer exercises. This portion of the class will include tactical-specific lessons that use ArcGIS and CrimeStat and will include a discussion of relevant tactical products.

The class draws heavily on the applicable Problem-Oriented Policing and Situational Crime Prevention literature. This portion of the class will include problem analysis techniques and will cover relevant problem analysis products.
