The certificate in Crime and Intelligence Analysis is a specialization that will provide students with the conceptual knowledge and analytical skills required of crime and intelligence analysis professionals. Students will receive practical instruction in crime analysis, criminal investigative analysis, organized crime and intelligence analysis, and law enforcement research and statistical methods.
We project for the first two years, Fall 2023-Fall 2024, that 35 students will earn their certificate in Crime and Intelligence Analysis.
The goal of this program is to prepare students with advanced technology and investigative techniques to analyze crime trends and patterns. Students will learn to use progressions in technology to plan, collect, collate, analyze and disseminate information and intelligence regarding crime and intelligence incidents.
