Crime Analyst in Residence Program

Building capacity in law enforcement

Program Overview

The Bureau of Justice Assistance Crime Analyst in Residence (CAR) Program is designed to help law enforcement agencies expand their use of data analysis and analytics to manage their operations and practices.

Using a hybrid approach of onsite and virtual technical assistance, the CAR Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Team will help law enforcement agencies integrate tailored crime and data analysis practices, products, tools, and information more fully into their daily operations and crime reduction efforts.

The CAR TTA Team will work closely with the program participants to assess and build their capacity to solve cases, identify crime patterns, develop problem-solving approaches, and implement crime-reduction strategies.

Crime analysis goes beyond what you know about crime patterns and problems to uncover what you don’t know.
