Episode: 00079

Release Date: November 1, 2021

Description: Crime analysts are more than the tools they use to do their jobs. In this episode, Beverly Lewis breaks down cost-effective (and free) tools and resources for analysts, especially for those who work at agencies that don’t have all the fancy bells and whistles. Beverly’s badge story involves a staffing study she conducted to help improve workflow; in addition, Beverly explains how she helped develop the Chronic Offender Recognition and Enforcement (CORE) database that ranks repeat offenders. Beverly was the crime analyst for the Town of Cary, North Carolina for almost nine years up until her retirement in August 2021.
