What is Crime Analysis?
The Nashua Police Department is committed to creating a culture that emphasizes proactive community policing through the systematic analysis of data and through the assessment of policing efforts. Examining the complex nature of problems and evaluating the effectiveness of prevention and crime reduction strategies will help ensure that the Department reaches its overall goal to best serve the Nashua community.
“Crime Analysis” is the unit within the agency responsible for providing information that will help the agency prevent, reduce, and solve crime and disorder. Crime Analysis collects data from a wide variety of sources and uses statistical techniques, data querying and aggregation methods, crime mapping applications, and qualitative research methods to turn this raw data into information that the police department can use.
Crime Analysis also exists to assist Nashua residents and prospective Nashua residents with their crime and disorder concerns.
