There is a single award category and nominations are strongly encouraged for analytical work impacting at all levels - this is not just about showcasing high profile work but encouraging outstanding achievements and innovative development in all areas, and at all levels, of analysis.
Rather than a points scoring system Judges are asked to select a winner based on criteria of their own devising. We suggest that nominations with the following characteristics may impress the judges:
- An innovative approach to crime intelligence analysis -
This may be through the use of new tools or techniques, the improvement and innovative implementation of analytical techniques, innovation in the use of visualisation or other communication methods etc.
- Clear evidence of benefit -
What impact has this work had? What is the benefit to the public? Is there a clear operational benefit and/or other benefit to the organisation?
