When a crime analyst works with mapping in the police department, he or she has several responsibilities. Write a 1–2 page paper that details the responsibilities of the crime analyst.

  • What can the analyst learn? Consider trends, patterns, and strategic crime analysis in your response.
  • Who depends on this information the analyst maps?
  • What does the information infer?
  • How can it be put to use?
