“From the opening remarks, Steve captures the attention of his students and takes them on an exciting, fact-filled journey through the world of crime analysis. The course is loaded with useful tips, easy to follow resource material, and good solid information that every student will use. Many people involved in the field of crime analysis have been taught the “tricks of the trade”… Steve Gottlieb’s Crime Analysis Applications Training “teaches you the trade.”
