One thing I think is really important for crime analysts is to keep up with your professional reading on crime and crime analysis. I'm always looking for new sources of good information relating to our profession. I recently was pointed to George Mason University's Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy. On the CEBCP website they have a section for one page summaries of research conducted by the center.
There are lots of great summaries of CEBCP on the site dealing with research on Crime and Place, Policing and Law Enforcement and other topics. You can view the Research One Page Summaries here.
A tip of the hat to Julie Wartel at the IACA Email Discussion list for the heads up on this site.
