Crime Analysis Unit (CAU)

About the Program
The Crime Analyst supports the operational elements of the sheriff's office by providing timely and accurate tactical, strategic, and administrative analysis of data relating to crime in support of the agency's goals and community oriented policing efforts. 
The Crime Analyst monitors criminal activity in Chisago County to determine patterns, trends, and geographical areas of concerns (hotspots). The analyzed information is disseminated to administration/command staff, patrol officers, investigators, outside agencies, and the public as needed for the prevention, intervention, and suppression of crime, assisting with administrative strategies, including directed patrol and the deployment of enhanced resources; aiding the investigative process through target profiling, and increasing the apprehension of offenders.
The Chisago County Sheriff's Office is committed to using technology to provide the highest level of protection and service to all who live, work, and/or visit our community. To accomplish this, we need the assistance of our citizens. How can you help? Be informed, be aware and call the Sheriff's Office to report suspicious activity.
If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Jacobson, Crime Analyst, at 651-213-6309 or by email.
