PSN subject matter experts (SMEs) can conduct the following activities as part of their crime analysis capacity assessment:
- Conduct a needs assessment to determine analytical gaps and needs.
- Develop and present recommendations for addressing the identified gaps and needs, including any specific programs or policies that can be targeted for TTA.
- Document how the recommended TTA would promote organizational change, help reduce crime and enhance public safety, and identify data sources and elements that will be used to support these conclusions.
- Outline technical solutions that enable real-time sharing of crime data and analytical products on a local, regional, and statewide basis, including examples of best practices that involve distance-learning tools and communications to address crime needs.
