Melissa Haynes

I believe I would be a strong asset as a BJA NTTAC Provider for training and technical assistance to law enforcement agencies in crime analysis. I have many years of experience working both as part of teams of consultants in conducting systems assessments, formulating recommendations, and providing technical assistance to criminal justice agencies; importantly, I also excel in the field of crime analysis.  Notably, I am one of a small number of individuals who have received the distinction of Certified Law Enforcement Analyst from the International Association of Crime Analysts.  

Center for Applied Insight Conflict Resolution

The Center for Applied Insight Conflict Resolution (CAICR) empowers strategic problem solving through curiosity. We use an Insight Conflict Resolution based method of curious questioning to elicit and illuminate the unique factors driving organizational and professional challenges that seem impossible to overcome. We teach organizations and professionals how to incorporate targeted curiosity into field-based skillsets to build capacity, enhance performance and elevate impact.
