Fight crime with data. Use your interest and aptitude in data and statistical analysis to help protect your community. You’ll learn to examine patterns of criminal behaviour to predict activity, identify threats in your community, and help to allocate your organization’s resources most effectively.
This field continues to evolve as technological advancements and the generation of digital information plays an increasingly influential role in detecting and preventing crime. Data from emails, videos, chat files, and text messages are just some of the mass amounts of data that can be used to gain valuable information.
You have the flexibility to study in-class or online so you can continue to work and earn while you learn.
