Benjamin Horwitz

As Director of Analytics at NOPD, Ben helped reduce response times by 50%, achieve nearly 95% compliance with the Consent Decree, and reduce homicides and armed robberies by over 10% for multiple years. To that end, Ben developed the nationally recognized Management Analytics for Excellence (MAX) which provides a comprehensive data environment for rigorous police management in the areas of crime, community policing, consent decree compliance, and other management topics.

The mission of the Center for Community Progress is to foster strong, equitable communities where vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties are transformed into assets for neighbors and neighborhoods. Founded in 2010, Community Progress is the leading national, nonprofit resource for urban, suburban, and rural communities seeking to address the full cycle of property revitalization. The organization fulfills its mission by nurturing strong leadership and supporting systemic reforms.

Directorate 2 LLC

I left my career in the U.S. Intelligence Community to create Directorate 2 and bring the intelligence community's best practices to law enforcement. Law enforcement intelligence is well-established, but experiences issues with organizational alignment, establishing an intelligence culture within a law enforcement agency, access to analytic training, and a lack of financial resources.

When we work with a jurisdiction to design a complex initiative, our client often retains us to produce an associated grant proposal to generate the project’s inaugural funding. We have achieved an impressive track record in impact fund-development; our compelling, well-researched, and successful proposals have raised tens of millions of dollars for our clients from federal, state, local, and private sources.

It addresses both the physical and mental health needs of police/ambulance/fire workers and their families. It also incorporates a longitudinal research component based on the Framingham Study.

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.
