BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Students in this course will focus on the various duties performed by tactical analysts in law enforcement. The students will study the 5 stages of the analysis cycle (planning, collection, collation, analysis, dissemination) and complete a variety of assignments and tasks associated to each of those stages. To complete the tasks, students will use word processing and charting software programs. The majority of the course will focus on the students' ability to collate and analyze the information provided to them. They will then develop their analytical skills in order to effectively target and profile deviant and criminal individuals and groups. The students will use their analytical skills to develop logically sound arguments for a variety of law enforcement actions.
Admission to a Forensic credential program or permission of the Program Coordinator.
