Interested In Learning More About Crime Analysis? (Analyst's Corner)

Deborah Osborne, a writer and former crime analyst, sponsors a very interesting podcast over on her blog Analyst's Corner. Her recent interview with Jim Mallard, the crime analysis supervisor for the Arlington, Texas Police Department and winner of the 2008 Technology Award from the International Association of Crime Analysts, is a good overview of crime analysis as a profession, and the role of technology in crime and intelligence analysis. Worth listening to if you are a professional or a student interested in the profession. For me, the most interesting aspect was comparing the problems and techniques of the crime analyst to those in the national security community (with which I am more familiar).
