Eau Claire County, Wisconsin is one of seven sites for the National Institute of Correction’s Evidence-Based Decision Making Project. Now in it’s third phase, the purpose of the EBDM initiative is to equip criminal justice policymakers in local communities with the information, processes, and tools that will result in measurable reductions of pretrial misconduct and post-conviction reoffending.
This article, Analyst officer takes a byte out of crime, published February 17, 2013 in the Leader-Telegram newspaper, highlights the valuable role a crime analyst officer can play as “part of our overall strategy to provide research- and evidence-based policing on the street”.
