Crime mapping plays an important role in almost any form of crime analysis and can improve our understanding of the important relationships between people, location, time, and crime. As a result, geographic information systems (GIS) has become an essential tool used by crime analysts to discover crime patterns, implement corrective strategies, optimize resource allocation and to develop crime prevention measures. Students will use ArcGIS to analyze crime series, conduct problem analysis, study crime trends, and address deployment issues as they relate to decision making in law enforcement. Students should have a working knowledge of Windows to be successful in this course.
