Choose any analysis tool used by police to visually illustrate crime trends (crime maps, hotspots, predictive data). Summarize what data the tool provides. Discuss the value of such a tool and provide an example of how the visual data is useful for decision makers. You can include strategies that could be utilized to direct resources as an example of data driven response in your original post or replies. What are some ways crime analysis can be integrated into the patrol function? Include your understanding of real time or actionable intelligence in your answer.
What is the role of an intelligence officer as opposed to an analyst? How can both roles be used to improve policing in an ILP concept?
