IACA Awards and Recognitions Committee (ARC)

Danelle DiGiosio – Chair of the Awards and Recognition Committee (awards@iaca.net)

I have been with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office since September 2013. I was a Crime Analyst at Lakewood (CO) PD for almost 6 1/2 years before that. I also served as an instructor and the Program Coordinator for the Crime Mapping and Analysis Program (CMAP) for nearly 7 years. I received my BSBA from the University of Denver and majored in Statistics and Operations Research. I am truly passionate about this career and am excited to see the field of Crime Analysis continue to grow and mature.

I have been serving as the Chair of the Awards and Recognition Committee since 2016. I enjoy being able to help recognize members of the IACA for their hard work and contributions to our association and our profession.
