- Analyze two benefits of crime analysis to the community and two benefits to law enforcement, and explain the importance of each benefit.
Note: Use at least two credible sources to support your analysis and discuss how you evaluated the credibility of the resources used. You may consult the Library, the Internet, course materials, and any other outside resources in supporting your task, using proper citations in APA style.
Your viewpoint and purpose should be clearly established and sustained. Your essay should be well ordered, logical and unified, as well as original and insightful.
The assignment should follow the conventions of Standard English (correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling).
