About Alpha Group Programs
The Alpha Group is best known for its ability to provide training in Crime Analysis, Criminal Intelligence and Analysis, Criminal Investigative Analysis (Criminal Profiling) and Research Methods in Law Enforcement.
Law enforcement and other government officials send their sworn officers and civilian personnel to our Criminal Analysis seminars, workshops, presentations, and training programs because of our proven ability to provide them with high- quality, performance-oriented training. Class exercises are based on real-world crime problems analysts are expected to solve each day. As such, students return to their agencies with not only the knowledge of what they should do, but, more importantly, how they should do it. Skills are developed by instructors who are intimately familiar with Criminal Analysis techniques, and by the students use of our comprehensive, easy-to-understand course materials.
These elements contribute to the continued popularity of our Criminal Analysis Training Programs.
Our success, however, comes from our achievement of one important goal: We Turn Theory into Practice.TM
The Certificate in Crime and Intelligence Analysis Program is designed to provide an academic yet practical training curriculum for both sworn and civilian criminal analysts worldwide and to formally recognize their contributions to the law enforcement profession. Within California, the pro- gram is taught at California State University Sacramento, California State Univer- sity, Fullerton, and at the University of California, Riverside. However, because Alpha Group instructors teach the DOJ curriculum within the University systems, the California Department of Justice allows students who attend our courses and who receive this curriculum at any satellite locations at which it is taught to receive certification as well. Thus, one need not travel to California to receive certification.
All participants in the Alpha Group’s Crime Analysis Applications, Criminal Intelligence and Analysis, Criminal Investigative Analysis, and Research Methods training courses are eligible to have their coursework credited toward the attainment of their professional Certificate in Crime and Intelligence Analysis.
Additionally, should they pursue this certification option, they are also eligible to receive university credit for their coursework.
