Crime Analysis Readiness Assessment (CARA) Tool Methodology, Instrument, and Sample Results

To assess the readiness of law enforcement agencies to engage in crime analysis (CA) at the regional (or local) level, a systematic assessment of organizational resources and support is vital. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance on assessing readiness to implement crime analysis. This instrument was partly adapted from a Crime Mapping Readiness Self- Assessment developed by Wartell, Groff, and Thomas (1999). This is part of the Nationwide Crime Analysis Capability Project.
