"This guide in the Problem-Solving Tools Series of the Problem-Oriented Guides for Police, is intended for police managers who wish to ensure that their crime analysts are properly inducted into the police environment and that their analytical work is fully integrated into departmental operations. The guide is organized around nine fundamental concerns that must be addressed when developing a problem-solving capacity within a crime analysis unit. Following each of the nine concerns, posed as questions, the author offers several recommendations for consideration when developing a group of skilled problem-solving crime analysts."
