Crime Analysis

Crime Analysis is defined as a set of systematic, analytical processes directed at providing timely and pertinent information relative to crime patterns and trend correlations to assist operational and administrative personnel in planning the deployment of resources for the prevention and suppression of criminal activities, aiding the investigative process, and increasing apprehensions and the clearance of cases.

We practice three different types of analysis processes:

Tactical Analysis provide information to assist patrol and investigations in the identification of specific crime problems and the arrest of criminal offenders. To this end, we are responsible for the examination of daily reports of serious crimes in order to determine the location, time, special characteristics, similarities to other criminal events and various significant facts that may help to identify either a criminal or the existence of a pattern of criminal activity. We produce a variety of crime and suspect bulletins for distribution to Placer County and surrounding law enforcement. We design maps for visual presentation of information. We maintain a number of databases containing suspect information and utilize several statewide databases that are useful in providing suspect leads.

Strategic Analysis: concerned with long-range problems and crime trends. This unit prepares monthly and annual statistical crime reports for the county’s Municipal Advisory Committees, available on this web site. We provide statistical reports in response to specific concerns of community groups and we furnish support data to our community policing and crime prevention programs.

Administrative Analysis: provision of economic, geographic, social or other types of general information to administrators. This unit assists with grant writing, special research projects, preparing and evaluating surveys, and training.
