Crime Analysis with Crime Mapping is the selected text for an online course offering by one of, if not the major professional crime analysis Association. I do not believe that this association is in the business of making product recommendations and I do not have the right to speak for the Association. Even so I suggest that the continued use of this text by this organization constitutes affirmation of the value of Prof. Boba's works beyond any editorial opinion from me.
The field of crime analysis is relatively new, still seeking standards and very much growing. Prof. Boba documents that crime analysis has roots going back at least as far as 1900. The term was defined as far back as 1970s. However the presence of law enforcement positions titled 'crime analyst' and law enforcement units dedicated to crime analysis is still not universal. I have met many people in the field of crime analysis who got there and got there recently by assignment rather than prior training. That is they work in law enforcement somebody walked up to them and said "congratulations you're a crime analyst". This text provides excellent introductory and intermediate level instructions on the vocabulary of crime analysis and practical insights into the practice crime analysis I strongly recommend this as one of a very small number of books that such a lucky person should study when assigned to be a Crime Analyst.
On the chance you are not familiar with the term crime analysis and are looking at this book while thinking of such television shows as NCIS; crime analysis may not be what you think. Crime analysts are not laboratory technicians dealing with machines like mass spectrometers. Crime analyst deal with a variety of issues mostly associated with data. Typical crime analyst duties may range from producing crime bulletins to more highly technical activities such as creating statistical and mapping software. It is not unknown to find the same person working duties across this spectrum in a single workweek.
Based on my own experience and preferences I would have liked more time spent on the subject of crime mapping. This is a differance on a matter of degree rather than substance.
At $60 for this copy and more for the newer edition this is not an inexpensive book. My copy was purchased through Amazon as a secondhand book. To Amazon's credit it arrived in exactly the condition promised. Even with my additional use this copy still has life in it.
