Description: Attention all crime analysts, today’s guest wants you to “take flipping action!” This episode is part podcast, part life coach session as Jason gets the opportunity to interview the CEO of crime analysis, Dawn Reeby. We learn about Dawn’s journey from police intern, to crime analyst, to later founder of her own company and most recently best-selling author. Dawn walks us through defining success and failure, building quality relationships, developing confidence, and maintaining that important work / life balance. Dawn’s badge story is on how she discovered the linkages on a suspected drug dealer’s car and how her crime analyst network provided the necessary pieces of the puzzle, making Dawn look like a magician to the detective. Dawn worked as a crime analyst at Lowell, Massachusetts Police Department, and at Nashua, New Hampshire Police; she is in an instructor for the International Association of Crime Analysts, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, and many other organizations and federal think tanks; she is the founder and CEO of Excellence in Analytics and author of Bigger than Data.
