Jack Wraith MBE, CEO of TUFF, said “In today’s information society the role and importance of sound analytical support is not only key to any investigation but is often critical to a successful outcome. The ACIA ensures, through its membership, that today’s analyst has a source of reference and best practice that has long been the missing pieces of the analytical jigsaw. Membership not only guarantees a means of keeping up to date but extends the networking that is also an essential part of the analysts role. I commend membership of the ACIA to all analysts and those who have an interest in extending their professional knowledge in this very important area.”
Giles York, DCC Sussex Police, Chair of ACPO National Analysis Working Group. "I have always been impressed by how individuals deliver so much more, progress so much faster and perform so much better when they are constructively challenged and supported by like minded peers. I believe the ACIA can deliver exactly this vibrant atmosphere if given the opportunity and support from all their key stakeholders. I readily welcome its launch at this critical time for policing so that analysis, in all its forms, can establish a strong foothold in the future of policing and law enforcement."
R. Mark Evans OBE, National Manager: Intelligence, New Zealand Police. "The analyst community across government, law enforcement, private industry and other sectors is growing across the world. Good crime intelligence analysis is now regarded as an important component of many key policing strategies. It is coming of age, but there remains a very great deal to do. ACIA has an important role to play in encouraging leadership across the world-wide analyst community, building capability, facilitating knowledge transfer and encouraging the growth of more effective networks. In New Zealand Police we look forward to working with ACIA to shape the future of crime intelligence analysis as a truly global profession."
Nick Gargan, T/Chief Constable, Chief Executive, National Policing Improvement Agency. "The intelligent use of resources has never been more important and therefore now is the time to invest in better intelligence and analysis. Analysts have a substantial contribution to make to neighbourhood policing, community safety, and reducing crime and disorder. The ACIA can only help to develop and enhance that contribution and I fully support their efforts."
