The Crime Analysis Detail is tasked with providing tactical, operational, and strategic-enabling analysis to support the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s mission. Tactical support consists of providing rapid statistical and visual representation of crimes and dissemination of data and information to our law enforcement partners and the public. Operational support provides analysis of geospatial crime mapping, offender networks, and criminal activity relationships to provide investigative support and direct departmental resources. Strategic analysis supports the predictive policing paradigm and data driven solutions to long-term problems as well as providing OCSD leadership with decision making advantages. The Detail is comprised of one Sergeant, several Crime Analysts, and interns seeking completion of their California Department of Justice Crime and Intelligence Analysis certification.
