Crime Analysis with Crime Mapping, 2nd Edition provides a basic introduction to crime analysis with crime mapping data and techniques for students and practitioners. Instead of focusing on specific technology or the use of it, the text focuses on concepts and practical examples of the concepts. As the only introductory core text book for crime analysis and mapping, this comprehensive text is one that every crime analyst should read and have on his or her shelf for review and reference. The 2nd Edition includes the following: A new preface outlines the purpose and intended market for the book A new chapter (3) links the previous theory chapter to the practice of crime prevention in policing and provides justification for the importance and role of crime analysis in policing A new chapter (9) discusses how patterns can be used by police and uses those concepts to walk students through the identification of meaningful and useful patterns A brief new chapter (15) concludes the text and provides a review of how crime analysis fits into policing and crime prevention, its importance, improvements that can be made, and the future of the profession An expanded discussion of the various types of technology for crime analysis and additional examples of how they can be used. Also included will be a broader discussion of GIS and GPS. A discussion of the problem-solving process used in policing provides more theoretical and practical context to the process of developing hypotheses and conducting analyses based on these hypotheses. A brief student study site takes the place of the original bound-in CD-Rom, and provides a link to the ATAC Software, exercise files, police reports, and journal articles An Instructor's Resource CD-Rom will provide chapter outlines, PowerPoint slides for each chapter, a sample syllabus, sample exams, and a test bank of multiple-choice and true//false questions (all created by the author)
