Committees

The IACA depends on committees and appointed positions (committees of one) to accomplish most of its major goals. The IACA bylaws establish certain permanent committees such as the Ethics Committee, the Parliamentarian, and the Conference Committee. Others are created by the Executive Board to manage certain projects, such as the Training Committee and the Publications Committee.

Each committee receives a charter that spells out its goals, restrictions, resources, and guidelines. Charters are intended to give committees guidance and parameters in the absence of day-to-day management from the Executive Board.

The IACA currently has the following committees and appointed positions. If you would like to contribute to any of the committees, please contact the respective chairperson.

Newly re-established in 2019, the Educational and Student Affairs Committee exists to serve as a liaison between colleges and universities offering crime analysis degrees and certificates, to advocate for good crime analysis educational standards, and to advocate for educator and student interests within the IACA. In 2019, the committee, in conjunction with the mentoring committee, established a formal mentoring program for students, to include a Career Discovery Day at the annual conference. They have begun cataloging the various college and university programs offered throughout the world and have begun developing a model curriculum to share with those programs. They have engaged with the criminology and crime analysis subscribers on Reddit.com to answer common student questions and are exploring IACA partnerships with academic and student organizations.

Chairperson

The Elections Committee began work on the 2019 Elections during the second quarter of 2019. This year the Vice President of Membership and Secretary positions are up for election.

The Membership Committee helps process new and renewing IACA memberships, keeps the membership database current and organized, and otherwise helps the Vice President of Membership with his duties. The committee’s efforts in 2018 and 2019 helped manage a record-high volume of members and process applications and renewals swiftly and efficiently. In early 2019, the committee had to adjust operations to accommodate a new web site, database, and commerce system.

Chairperson

Rachel Carson

The Mentoring Program pairs new members with veteran members who can provide advice on topics like skill development, better integration within the agency, dealing with difficult co-workers, and designing quality crime analysis products. The Mentoring Committee in 2019 finally recruited enough mentors to pair with its list of mentees. They worked with the Educational and Student Affairs Committee to establish a mentoring program specific to students and began a systematic process of surveying mentors and mentees about their experiences.

Chairperson

Michael Jackson

The Publications Committee is committed to developing key resources for crime analysts, IACA committees, members of law enforcement (including senior leadership), researchers, and the broader public that supports and promotes the growth, institutionalization, and professionalization in the field of crime analysis. The Committee will focus on products that are meaningful and accessible by exploring various media (including social media) and gaining input from the IACA membership. Our work will be focused on the development of a professional newsletter, supporting and digitizing the IACA’s foundational text Exploring Crime Analysis, and collaborating with other IACA committees.

John Ng
Chairperson

The Regional Associations Committee (RAC) was established in 2020 in order to provide support to local and regional crime analyst associations affiliated with the IACA.
