Crime Analysis

Crime Analysis is a set of processes, techniques, and products that provide information support for the mission of a law enforcement or criminal justice agency. Crime analysts create and communicate information that helps their agencies prevent crime and disorder, apprehend offenders, and improve the safety and quality of life of their communities.

The mission of the Roseville Police Department's Crime Analysis Unit is committed to a leading role in providing timely and accurate tactical, strategic, administrative, and intelligence analysis in support of the agency's goals of crime reduction and community safety.

  • Strategic Analysis: Concerned with long-range problems and projections of long-term increases or decreases in crime (crime trends). Strategic analysis also includes the preparation of crime statistical summaries, resource acquisition, and allocation studies.
  • Administrative Analysis: Focuses on provision of economic, geographic, or social information to administration.
  • Intelligence Analysis: Aids in determination of who's doing what with whom by its focus on the relationship between persons and organizations involved in illegal and usually conspiratorial activities.
