Crime analysis activities include utilizing Geographical Information System (GIS) software and crime reports to produce computer generated maps displaying crime activity geographically throughout the City of Coeur d’Alene and surrounding areas; analysis of the mapping results to identify underlying causes of crime problems; and the implementation of interventions to address the causes. This includes working with other agencies to design, coordinate and implement interventions as prescribed by analysis activities.
An important component of crime analysis involves communication of crime related information within the department, with other law enforcement agencies, and with the community.
Communication within the department includes preparing and distributing crime information bulletins, wanted person/known offender posters and crime trend summaries to law enforcement personnel with the ultimate outcome of increasing the effectiveness of patrol deployment, criminal investigations, special operations, and tactical unit activities.
Communication with other law enforcement agencies includes dissemination of crime analysis information, discussions of interventions and results, and providing mapping services.
Communications with the community involve crime maps posted on the police department’s website and e-mail newsletters communicating crime trends, prevention tips and useful links to educate the public.
