The Nationwide Crime Analysis Capability Building Project was initiated by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), to identify and evaluate promising practices to assist jurisdictions in enhancing their crime analysis capacity. To help develop this toolkit, BJA selected and engaged three law enforcement agencies that represented both diversity and progressive crime analytical capacity. These police departments have known proficiencies in crime analysis and have established real time crime centers. They are also actively engaged in regional crime analysis capabilities. The police departments selected are located in Charlotte–Mecklenburg, Cleveland, and Tempe. Each of these sites was paired with research partners. This toolkit provides the project findings and resources from these three sites, as well as other publicly available crime analysis resources that can help advance criminal justice decision making and enhance the impact of crime analysis. The toolkit was designed to enable users to explore resources and refine their approaches.
