The Police Foundation is bringing back Crime Mapping & Analysis News. This week the first volume of the quarterly online newsletter (www.crimemapping.info) will be released, highlighting innovative programs in crime mapping and analysis. This is a renewal of the popular newsletter that started in the late 1990’s, that helped to shape the standards for how police strategically engage mapping and crime analysis methods.
Crime Mapping & Analysis News brings together articles by both researchers and practitioners on the methods, technologies and tools that support innovation, data collection and evidence-based practices in law enforcement agencies. The newsletter is a revamped version of Crime Mapping News, which was published by the Police Foundation from 1999-2009. This revised version is a vehicle for law enforcement professionals, crime analysts, researchers and crime prevention managers and executives, and criminologists to share their ideas to improve and strengthen the law enforcement community
