Location is central to crime and policing; analysis is key to resolving and preventing crimes. Effective crime analysis helps law enforcement agencies find out the who, what, when, where, how, and why of emerging crime in a community. With the advent of big data in the past decade, there has been a growing demand for crime analysts to use location technology to help identify patterns as they emerge, establish links, produce insightful reports and provide recommendations for crime prevention.
Crime Analysis is an add-in for ArcGIS Pro that includes new tools to manage data, perform tactical/strategic/investigative analysis and enable information sharing. Toronto’s Ryerson University has introduced a certificate program in crime analytics for law enforcement that will provide students with a theoretical foundation coupled with extensive practical experience with tools such as Esri’s Crime Analysis solution for tactical, strategic and administrative decision-making. The program’s Crime Analytics courses, taught by Ian Williams from Toronto Police Service, will help students gain practical knowledge in GIS mapping and data analysis as well as broader foundational knowledge in criminal justice, policing, and criminal behavior.
