Chris Jaeger
Crime Analyst
(715) 839-6582

The Crime Analyst reviews and organizes case data to determine crime trends within the community. Patrol officers and detectives work with the Crime Analyst to develop more effective approaches to proactively address crime in their neighborhood beats.

Some of the essential functions of the crime analyst include data compilation and analysis, problem solving, written and visual compositions, and record maintenance. The crime analyst is an integral part of the Problem Oriented Policing philosophy at the Eau Claire Police Department. The analyst provides the Chief's staff, patrol district commanders and detectives with weekly reports detailing crime trends and quality of life issues that are occurring throughout the city. The analyst also focuses on specific crime activity by creating "hot spot" and "density" maps, which assist officers in developing plans to target and prevent criminal activity.

The Crime Analyst, Chris Jaeger, holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology from Marquette University and a Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
