Crime Analysis
Unit Overview

The Mission of the Fremont Police Department's Crime Analysis Unit is to provide objective analysis to aid in the deployment of resources; focus enforcement activities on the most serious offenders; and to prevent, reduce and disrupt criminal activity.

Crime Analysis supports a number of department functions that include: Patrol, Investigations, Community Engagement, and tactical units such as our Street Crimes Unit, Major Crimes Task Force and S.W.A.T Team.

Types of Crime Analysis

  • Tactical Crime Analysis: deals with immediate criminal offenses to promote quick response. It provides information to assist operational personnel in the identification of specific crime trends and in the arrest of criminal offenders. The primary goal is to identify crime trends and patterns/series.  Tactical information links offender and modus operandi information from a number of offense in an attempt to provide investigative leads, help solve crimes, and clear cases after apprehension and arrests.
  • Strategic: concerned with operational strategies and seeks solutions to on-going problems. It provides information for resource allocation purposes, including patrol scheduling and beat configuration. Its purpose is to identify unusual crime activities over certain levels or at different seasonal times, identify unusual community conditions, provide police service more effectively and efficiently by matching demands for service with service delivery, reduce and/or eliminate recurring problems, and assist in community policing or problem-oriented policing.
  • Administrative: involves long range projects. Tasks include providing economic, geographic and law enforcement information to police management, city hall, city council, and neighborhood/citizen groups. Its purpose is financial, organizational, political, and legislative. It is critical to budget, personnel, public information, and legal issues.  Steven Gottlieb et al., 1994, "Crime Analysis: From First Report To Final Arrest."
