Matrix Demonstration Project Offers Two New Modules on Crime Analysis

mdp The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP), housed within the Department of Criminology, Law, and Society at George Mason University, seeks to make scientific research a key component in decisions about crime and justice policies. CEBCP carries out this mission by advancing rigorous studies in criminal justice and criminology through research-practice collaborations and proactively serving as an informational and translational link to practitioners and the policy community.

CEBCP's Matrix Demonstration Project, funded by BJA, recently released two new online training modules. The first module "Crime Analysis for Commanders," presented in four video "chapters," helps law enforcement agency commanders first understand what crime and intelligence analysis is and the relevance and importance to law enforcement and then provides commanders with a "road map" to help them lead their agencies into policing strategies, based on effective crime analysis.

The second module, "Crime Analysis for Operations," is designed to help organizations use crime and intelligence analysis to support their operations by maximizing their resource allocations and expanding their patrol operations.

The instructor for these training modules is Jamie Roush, the Crime Analysis Unit Manager for the Jacksonville (Florida) Sheriff's Office, who was inducted into the Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame in June 2012.

These BJA-funded trainings are an excellent—and free—resource for those interested in crime analysis and how it can benefit law enforcement operations.
