Overview

Using Microsoft Office as a tool, this program will demonstrate the benefits of technology in crime analysis, investigations and community policing. Classroom work will utilize selected handouts from the book “Better Policing with Microsoft Office 2007,” co-authored by the course instructor. Utilizing exercises similar to projects faced by crime analysts, participants will use Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel in concert to analyze crime patterns, trends and problems.

In order to receive the most benefit from this learning experience, please bring a laptop loaded with either Microsoft Office Professional 2000, 2002, 2003 or 2007 which includes Access and Excel. If a laptop is not available, the student may share with another student or simply observe the techniques being used in class. The entire class will be interactive and will be based on the book, Better Policing with Microsoft Office 2007 by Christopher W. Bruce and Mark A. Stallo, Ph.D.
