“I went against all my inner instincts and took the Research Methods In Criminal Justice and Criminology online course through the Alpha Group Center. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed all of the Alpha Group classes that I have attended, Criminal Intelligence Analysis, Criminal Investigative Analysis, Advanced Criminal Investigative Analysis, Crime Analysis Applications, but I was apprehensive of taking an on-line class, especially when I’ve heard that Research Methods can be a bear.
I have to tell you that I enjoyed it thoroughly. I finished the course in just a few short weeks and learned a great deal about conducting research with some of the problems that we have in the area. Problem oriented policing is a big concept in Crime Analysis and doing research on problem areas is a great part of it.
The instructor, Tanveer Makhani, was very helpful with the class and made it a much easier learning environment.
I encourage everyone who needs this class for Certification to definitely consider taking it. Four other analysts from our agency, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, have also completed this course.”
