Episode: 00098

Release Date: March 14, 2022

Description: How many police chiefs have you’ve gone through? Two? Three? How about four (and counting). In this week’s episode, Officer Joe Lorenz, a sworn analyst, shares his experience working for multiple police chiefs and how it affected the analytical culture, dynamic, and of course, the products and workload (e.g., CompStat). At one point, Joe’s CompStat presentation reached 40+ slides! Joe’s badge story involves a burglary series. Joe gives his insights on sworn officers in analytical roles versus analysts trying to understand the sworn roles. Joe is currently a crime analyst for the Cincinnati Police Department District Three.
