IACA’s Crime Analysis Symposium for Law Enforcement Executives

Event Type: 
Wednesday Jul 16, 2014 - 01:00pm to 09:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

This symposium will provide law enforcement executives with the tools to incorporate crime analysis and evidence-based policing into their everyday practices, making their agencies more effective and efficient in reducing crime in their communities. Executives will be shown how to expand the use of crime analysis throughout their agencies to process data they are already collecting. 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 will include discussions about “what works,” and will make recommendations based on nationally recognized best practices.

Dr. Rachel Santos, Associate Professor, Florida Atlantic University;
Dr. Roberto Santos, Commander, Pt. Saint Lucie (FL) Police Department;
Dr. Laura Wyckoff, BJA Crime Analysis Fellow, Police Foundation Science Advisor.

To tailor this symposium considering your agency's needs and your personal questions about the integration of crime analysis, we will ask you to complete a short questionnaire about your agency's current crime analysis practices. We will email you a link to complete this questionnaire within three weeks of the symposium.

Please note: This symposium is open to law enforcement executives and command staff only. The session is free, however, travel expenses incurred will be the responsibility of attendees.
