Administrative and Strategic Analysis is a 12-week online course that focuses on the administrative and strategic aspects of crime analysis. These types of crime analyses can be used to leverage law enforcement information into administrative decision-making processes and long-term operational strategies. Topics covered include crime reporting/statistics, operational analysis, staffing studies, redistricting, administrative forecasting, quantitative and qualitative data, problem analysis, DDACTS, and Risk-Terrain Modeling (RTM). Please see the outline below. 


This is an intermediate course. Students are suggested to have a basic understanding of analytical skills and/or 2-3 years of experience.

Students should expect a time commitment of 3-5 hours per week to gain a passing grade. The course will be graded as a pass/fail. This is not a self-paced course; we will advance to each new topic week as a group. Students can login anytime to work as needed, there are no live sessions. Participation throughout the course is required for a passing grade. As a rule, bulk submissions of your work during the last week of class will not be accepted unless you have received prior authorization from the instructor. 

Invitations to the learning platform will be sent the week before class starts. For more information on how the 12-week online classes work, please see our FAQs page.
