Crime Analysis with ArcGIS

Many law enforcement agencies are using maps and other spatial analysis to help drive decision making. The Crime Analysis with ArcGIS workshop builds upon the introductory skills that a user already has using the ArcGIS software.  The workshop will be taught using open source criminal justice data to afford participants the ability to analyze and explore real world data and patterns.  While this workshop will be most applicable to analysts who work in law enforcement, current employment by a law enforcement agency is not required.
