Our unit’s mission is to guide and support Fremont’s intelligence-led policing (ILP) model. The use of analysis and intelligence is foundational to all levels of objective decision making. ILP prioritizes crime hot spots, repeat victims, prolific offenders and criminal groups.1 Our analysis guides the deployment of resources; leads enforcement activities on the most serious offenders; and informs coordinated strategies to prevent, reduce and disrupt criminal activity. While the primary goal of ILP is crime reduction, equally important to the Fremont Police Department is the building of public trust and legitimacy. We believe through the use of objective analysis and community supported technologies, our crime prevention and investigative practices will instill public confidence and increase community safety.
Our unit consists of a professional manager, an analyst and two detectives. We work hand in hand with our Special Investigations Unit by analyzing the crime issues and identifying serious offenders that drive their daily operations plan.
