Since the inception of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Public Safety Partnership (PSP), which built upon lessons learned from a pilot concept known as the Violence Reduction Network (VRN), crime analysis has been a core focus area. One of the goals of the PSP is to enhance the crime analysis capabilities of each PSP site during their engagement, so that all core crime analysis competencies are obtained. To achieve this goal, the PSP provides sites with various Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) opportunities and resources. This document provides an overview of the TTA opportunities available to the PSP sites, case study summaries of PSP sites that have focused on crime analysis and a discussion of the path forward as it relates to crime analysis within the PSP.
