NORCAN is a dynamic and growing network of law enforcement crime analysts, intelligence analysts, private sector analysts, commissioned officers, academics, and others simply interested in crime analysis. We originated out of a multi-agency recognition of the need for a formal, professional resource to crime analysts in the Northwest and have since grown into a multi-state, multi-national network.


We not only value your input, we rely on each of our members to help make NORCAN a success. Since we rely on networking to gather and share information, every new membership makes us stronger. Our goal is to be a resource to local analysts and commissioned personnel by assisting with information-sharing and by providing training and support. Your contributions are important. Together we can make a positive impact on crime in our communities.
