What others say about this book…
“This book is a valuable part of my analysis education and I would recommend it to others that need something to rely on.”
“Stephen Gottlieb, the lead author of Crime Analysis, and his company have taken this book all over the world as the classroom text for new crime analysts and supervisors of crime analysis units. It is known throughout the crime analysis community as the “black book” or the “Gottlieb book”. In my unit, all newly assigned personnel were handed a copy of this book.
Mr. Gottlieb, a former police officer and lead writer of this book, wrote it with the police officer in mind. It is not designed as an academic text. The language is informal and conversational. It is organized to run from basic introductory concepts to subjects a department should consider when it begins to form a crime analysis unit.
Having studied this book, a person can go from no knowledge of the profession to functioning at an intermediate level. It is not unusual for individuals to be assigned to crime analysis duties with no prior background. This may be the single best book for that individual.
There are better books for the more sophisticated reader and for the graduate student. If you plan to stay in the profession you should not stop with the Gottlieb book. However, with this book you will be able to quickly become a functioning crime analyst.
There may be better crime analysis books available; however, Crime Analysis: From First Report to Final Arrest achieves its stated purpose for its intended audience. It is worthy of five stars.”
“Every analyst needs this book.”
“I already got the book yesterday. The book is great for my job because all I wanted to know as a crime analyst is in it.”
“Now I just have to get signed up to take the class. This book actually helps me do day-to-day things for my job and is never far away.”
“I used this book for a class. I found it then and find it now as an essential part of my Crime Analyst learning/reference library. Anyone in the Criminal Analysis field should have and actively refer to this book.”
