The Crime Analyst
In this assignment, you will interview a crime analyst with a police department either by phone or in person. Of course there are going to be things that they will not be able to tell you. However, if you tell them right up front that you are a student taking a crime analysis class they will usually lighten up. Find out things about their jobs, qualifications, salary, job satisfaction, and duties.
If you are unable to interview a crime analyst please contact the instructor for an alternate assignment.
