Crime Analysis Unit
The Riverside County Sheriff's Department, Central Crime & Intelligence Analysis Unit was formed in October of 1991. These skilled individuals focus on the analysis of who is doing what to whom and in some cases who is doing what with whom as it relates to criminal activity in our county. Though the unit's core philosophy remains the same, updates and improvements in technology, processes, and methodologies are routinely performed. The results from these enhancements positively impact our success and the success of the stations and units we support.
Analysts are able to provide timely and reliable parolee, field interview and warrant information. They have the ability to efficiently analyze crime data using state-of-the-art geographical information systems. Their research and analytical skills have led to the identification of numerous subjects and suspects throughout the years.
Success in crime analysis is no accident; our analysts are carefully screened and selected for their education, skills, and ability to work as a team. Possessing the necessary skills from the start, combined with ongoing training and professional development, ensures that they remain at the highest level of competence.
Crime Analysis Response Team (CART)
In 1996, the concept of providing deputies with real-time analysis and information at a crime scene or special project became a reality. Riverside County's Crime Analysis Response Team was the first of its kind to bring this concept to fruition, and these efforts have been duplicated throughout the United States. Crime analysis is now an effective tool that allows the department to better organize special operations, support parole and probation sweeps, and provide valuable information to deputies and investigators at the scene of a crime.
Case Management System
The Case Management System for the Central Homicide Unit (CHU) is a database that houses all homicides dating back to 1931 and CHU-supported cases since its inception in 2001. The database provides a way to access information on officer-involved shootings, homicide cases, homicide arrests, and outstanding homicide and manslaughter warrants.
