San Diego County CA— Sheriff’s Senior Crime and Intelligence Analyst (SCIA) John Cromwell was awarded the Steve Gottlieb/Alpha Group Center Award for Creativity and Excellence on Thursday. The prestigious honor from the California Crime & Intelligence Analysts Association is given to an individual who has developed or implemented a new method, process, technique or tool for crime analysis.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department utilizes Information Led Policing (ILP) methodologies to keep the public safe. It’s all about putting resources at the right place and time.
A crime analyst gathers the information, analyzes the data and identifies patterns. Resources such as increased patrols can then be diverted to where and when crimes are expected to occur. SCIA Cromwell has been instrumental in the furtherance of our ILP strategies.
SCIA Cromwell was honored today for his long-term outstanding job performance, exemplary leadership, vision and creativity. John’s work greatly contributed to the development of a comprehensive analytical platform which has become the gold standard for Sheriff’s investigators and analysts alike.
Thanks to SCIA Cromwell’s innovativeness, the Sheriff’s Department remains on the cutting edge of modern analytical techniques. It is an honor to recognize John’s accomplishments, all of which help us keep San Diego the safest urban county in the nation.
