The primary responsibility of the Crime Analysis section is to serve as a central distribution center to share information with and between patrol, investigations and other surrounding law enforcement agencies.
Crime Analysis duties include, but are not limited to, studying crime reports, arrest reports and calls for service to identify emerging patterns, series and trends. These factors are analyzed to assist in forecasting future occurrences. The information received is then documented and supplied to others in the form of criminal intelligence bulletins.
