ATWJE - Kristen Jacoby - The Mile High Analyst
Episode: 00146 Released on February 13, 2023
Description: The law enforcement analysis profession is full of people helping other people. In this episode, Kristen (Kris) Jacoby explains how she first learned about the profession, and how our friend and former guest, Noah Fritz, helped her during her college days when he was a professor at the University of Denver. Kris discusses her experience as a research assistant and intern for the Denver Police Department (DPD), and how those experiences helped her land a job just ten days after graduation! The DPD Crime Analysis Unit unsurprisingly looked different back then compared to today, and Kris discusses the various changes that have occurred since she started, how they navigated through the pandemic, and where she thinks they are going from here. Kris is currently a crime analyst for the Denver Police Department, a position she’s held for almost 17 years.
