Introduction to Crime Analysis

Crime Analysis can be used to enhance public safety, identify emerging trends, organize law enforcement operations and plan crime-prevention strategies.

It improves productivity of crime analysts with specialized tools and a tailored desktop GIS interface for mapping data and performing spatial analysis, making it easier to quickly generate high-quality crime analysis map products. Improved crime analyst productivity helps law enforcement decision makers optimize resource allocation, solve cases, and implement more effective crime-reduction strategies. Crime Analysis is typically implemented by law enforcement agencies that want to use data-driven strategies to reduce crime and improve police operations.

The Crime Analysis solution delivers a set of capabilities to help you manage incident data, conduct tactical and strategic analysis, perform investigative analysis, and share web-based or hard-copy information products with decision makers.
