About the IACA

The IACA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) professional association comprised of criminal justice professionals, including working analysts, students, educators, researchers and private vendors. We have a common goal of furthering the field of crime analysis and the diversity of our membership provides many perspectives from which we can all learn more. The IACA Executive Board and various committees are staffed by dedicated individuals who volunteer their time to improve the profession.

Membership dues, proceeds from merchandise sales and training fees all contribute to supporting and expanding the programs we offer to our members.
