Analysis is an integral part of police and public safety decision making – if a crime problem is clearly understood, it can help identify the solutions that will most likely be effective.  Although the profile of analysis has been raised in recent years, its routine production has often resulted in many analysis products often offering only a descriptive presentation of the problem that is being examined, rather than one that is explanatory in its tone.

This one-day masterclass instructs the use of a hypothesis testing methodology to improve the explanatory content of crime and intelligence analysis, and illustrate its use with a rich range of examples: from street prostitution to drug dealing; from burglary to violent crime; from street drinking to youth-related ASB.  The course takes delegates through a step-by-step guide on the hypothesis testing analysis approach and illustrates how it leads to producing analytical products that are richer in explanatory and interpretative substance, helps to improve commissioning dialogue, and generates results that help to more specifically identify how a crime problem can be tackled.

The one-day masterclass is interactive, will involve working on real crime issues in a classroom environment, but without the use of computers.


Aimed at: Police, CSP analysts, researchers and information officers
