Crime Analysis & Data Visualization
Often organizations and law enforcement agencies accumulate large amounts of data but have difficulty synthesizing the information in ways that are practical and easy to interpret. If you provide us with the formulas you want to apply, we can analyze data for you, or we can assist you in designing formulas and templates that your staff can use to assess additional data in the future.
Frequently, the basic formulas for crime prevention are not complicated, but many agencies apply them in cumbersome, static ways or without helpful visualizations. We can teach you how to use widely-available, user-friendly programs like Microsoft Excel to quickly and dynamically organize and represent large amounts of complex data, producing results that make trends easy to spot.
Our approach always uses visually appealing, color-coded reports that can often be quickly interpreted even by a layperson. In addition, our statistical analysis always includes a standard deviation or margin of error when it is possible to derive one from the available data.
Whether you are a local police department looking to find better ways to visualize the information you have collected, or an attorney trying to assemble an accurate report of the crime data relevant to your case, or an intelligence agency looking to streamline its processes - we can help you to make the best, and clearest, use of all of the relevant, available data.
