Advancing Policing Through Innovation & Science: A Crime Analysis Symposium for Law Enforcement Leaders


The Police Foundation and the International Association of Crime Analysts invite law enforcement executives to a highly-informative symposium that will provide them an overview of crime analysis best practices and organizational considerations necessary to integrate crime analysis and evidence-based policing strategies into their agencies’ everyday practices, making them more effective and efficient in reducing crime in their communities.

Executives will be shown how to focus their use of crime analysis by matching the appropriate type of analysis to the appropriate rank and division in the agency, so that crime reduction at all levels is informed by actionable crime analysis. The expert team of presenters – a police executive, criminologist, and crime analyst - will explore how agencies of all sizes can integrate approaches such as problem-oriented policing, hot-spots policing, community policing, predictive policing and intelligence-led policing.

The symposium is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance.
