Description: A success story for the ages! This week our guest, Nicolas Smith gives a compelling story of his educational and professional journey that took him from Trinidad and Tobago to The Big Apple. Nicolas explains how his military training helped him prepare and transition into civilian analysis, and how he helped addressed package thefts in NYC as part of his analyst badge story. Nicolas is currently a crime analyst for the New York Police Department and an adjunct professor at the College of Science, Technology, and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago.
We have a new segment called The Analysts of Tomorrow where we highlight up-and-coming analysts with exceptional potential in the field of law enforcement analysis. Got someone you'd like us to highlight? Let us know in the comments, or if you’d like to be featured in a future episode, please send us a recording (no more than 30 seconds) of who you think is an "Analyst of Tomorrow" and why to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHALLENGE: There are Easter eggs in one of the tables of the chapter that Jason wrote for the IACA textbook. First-person to email us at email@example.com about what the Easter eggs are will receive a $20 gift card from us. Happy hunting!
