What is the Center for Intelligence and Crime Analysis?
Housed within the Sam Houston State University College of Criminal Justice, the Institute for Homeland Security is home to the Center for Intelligence and Crime Analysis (CICA). Our mission is to assist public safety agencies and critical infrastructure organizations to increase their analytical capabilities through professional development, education, and research.
The public and private sectors operate in an environment fraught with threats and opportunities. The interconnected nature of American society increases the severity of manmade and natural threats facing public and private organizations. Building organizational resiliency and improving performance is predicated on an understanding of external and internal risk factors.
CICA’s goal is to enhance public safety through expanded and improved data analytics.
