Crime Never Looked so Good – Graphic Design for Analysts

April 19 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Please join us for our next webinar:

Crime Never Looked so Good – Graphic Design for Analysts

Presenters: Jennifer Satterwhite
Agency: Virginia Crime Analysis Network

Presentation Abstract:

Crime analysts are visual information specialists producing bulletins, reports, and presentations for use by officers, investigators, government officials and the public. This presentation will discuss how to apply graphic design principals into crime analysis. Visualizing data is part art and part science. A good analyst can take both quantitative and qualitative data to answer questions through text and visuals.  Knowing how to visualize, what tools are appropriate, and the best medium to convey your message are critical.

Properly incorporating graphic design elements into crime and intelligence analysis can cause your analytical product to be utilized by law enforcement to help curb crime, solve cases, and promote public safety. Poorly designed products can be ignored, mocked, and lead to less trust between analysts and their law enforcement counterparts.

Crime analysts should be visual innovators and their products should reflect that. Our products should routinely evolve to stay current with the needs of the department, the demands of the data, and the technology trends.  Analysts must balance consistency and evolution within their products; consistency so your customers know what to expect from you, and evolution so your products don’t grow stagnant and stale. This presentation will demonstrate how to use graphic design elements in your analytical products, so your analysis is appealing, clear and effective.

This event is free for VCAN members and $10 for non-members.

Event is on April 19, 2024, from 1pm – 3pm Eastern Standard Time. Registration closes at COB on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.
