MARCAN is a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2000 under the by-laws of the International Association of Crime Analysts (IACA). Our goal is to promote inter-agency information sharing, provide assistance, and host training to local, state and federal agencies in the area of crime and intelligence analysis.
Once a month (the third Thursday of every month at 11 am), MARCAN hosts the Metro Intel meeting for law enforcement agencies in the Kansas City area. Restricted to law enforcement only, these meetings are an opportunity for agencies to share information regarding crime trends and series and collaborate their efforts to identify and apprehend suspects. Before each Metro Intel meeting is the MARCAN meeting, which starts at 10 am.
The MARCAN meeting will be held on October 21st at 1000 hrs at TBD
Metro Intel will follow at 1100.
MARCAN membership is available to any local, state, or federal law enforcement employee. The most appropriate agency member is the individual(s) responsible for performing crime analysis related functions, whether on a formal or informal basis. A membership application is available here. Membership dues are $40 the first year (and $35 every year after that) and includes membership to the International Association of Crime Analysts.
College students interested in a career in law enforcement are also encouraged to join. Student membership is only $15!
