MACA is a non-profit professional organization formed in 1997 and dedicated to encouraging the development of crime analysis among law enforcement, corrections and retail agencies. MACA does this through training, and by providing a forum to share techniques, tools and ideas.
MACA is the regional crime analysis association of the Northeast – with over 150 members, from Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Eastern Canada.
We conduct monthly meetings throughout the region which include a wide variety of training topics related to crime analysis.
All of our members are also members of the International Association of Crime Analysts (IACA) and MACA also has the largest number of IACA Certified Law Enforcement Analysts (CLEA's) of all of the regional crime and intelligence analyst associations affiliated with the IACA.
The mission of the Massachusetts Association of Crime Analysts is to provide guidance and assistance to local, state and federal agencies in an effort to ensure that the law enforcement field benefits from effectual training, progressive education and a high degree of sensibility. Toward this goal, MACA advocates the highest professional standards in fostering a cooperative, informed and communicative crime analysis network.
MACA members gather every year in May for a 5 day Annual Training Conference. The conference offers training related to current crime analysis and policing trends, showcases vendor exhibitions, and facilitates and encourages networking opportunities, and discussions.
