The Virginia Crime Analysis Network (VCAN) was established in 2001 to meet the training demands of Crime Analysts in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

VCAN brings together more than 200 members representing over 60 police departments and sheriff’s offices across Virginia. Our membership also includes students, academic professionals, and private sector professionals who support sworn law enforcement.
It is our mission to promote the exchange of crime and intelligence analysis information and to encourage increased professionalism in the crime analysis field throughout the Commonwealth.
