“Advancing the DDACTS Analytical Toolset”
Level II (Intermediate) Analyst: 2-day Training Course
The International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and
Training (IADLEST), in conjunction with Texas Department of Transportation, is proud to announce a
free Nationally certified 2-day course titled Advancing the DDACTS Analytical Toolset.
This intermediate-level training course will cover more advanced techniques in DDACTS hot
spot identification, analysis, and evaluation, including identifying hot spots via
geographic buffer, calculating street-level thresholds, and correlating enforcement metrics with
changes in crime and crash totals.
The class is the next segment in a multi-part training series that builds upon the Level I (Basic)
analyst training—Crime and Traffic Safety Analysis: Techniques to Support DDACTS—and the 12-part
online series Data Analysis Using Microsoft Access and the GIS: Mapping and Hot Spot Identification
webinar series. Participants attending this training are expected to already
understand how to query and filter data, geocode crash and crime addresses, and
identify hot spots. The training program is being conducted by Christopher Bruce,
IADLEST Analytical Director for the DDACTS Program, and previous Vice President of the
International Association of Crime Analysts.
