The Crime Strategies Unit consists of three attorneys, a crime analyst and an investigator. Created in 2015 as part of the Circuit Attorney’s Office commitment to reducing gun violence, this unit has one goal: gather, analyze and share data among law enforcement agencies, the judiciary and the community to enhance the state's ability to hold individuals accountable for violating Missouri law. This team analyzes and processes data to identify crime trends and crime-driving groups in our community. The Crime Strategies Unit is a key connector among law enforcement agencies and has a keen understanding of criminal activity in various geographic areas of the city.
