Herkimer College's Criminal Justice: Crime & Intelligence Analysis A.A.S program gives you the knowledge, skills, and critical thinking you need to succeed in public and private careers in criminal justice. Graduates of the program often find jobs in local, state, or federal law enforcement or government intelligence agencies. The military and private contractors also hire intelligence analysts to deal with security issues. This program is a practitioner-based program developed by faculty with almost 30 years of experience in law enforcement.

In this program, you will develop research and analytical skills used in crime analysis or intelligence for criminal justice agencies, explore crime analysis and intelligence theories, build your analytical, writing, and team management skills, and also collect and analyze data to forecast criminal profiles to solve crimes and predict future crimes.

Upon graduation, you'll be eligible to take the NYS certification exam to become a crime analyst for the Division of Criminal Justice Services.
