The Massachusetts Association of Crime Analysts is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to:
Training crime analysts
Encouraging the development of crime analysis among police agencies
Providing a forum to share techniques, tools, and ideas
To achieve these goals, MACA holds monthly meetings (which include training), runs an Annual Training Conference, conducts training and technical support throughout New England, prepares articles and presentations on a number of crime analysis topics, and provides an e-mail discussion list for our members.
MACA was organized in the Spring of 1997 by Officer Robert Stering of the Waltham Police Department, shortly after he was assigned to crime analysis in his agency.by
