Mid-America Regional Crime Analysis Network


MARCAN was formed in 2000 under the by-laws of the International Association of Crime Analysts (IACA) and has as its goal 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.

MARCAN offers many training opportunities for our members throughout the year in a variety of formats.

Most of these events are free for MARCAN members.

Once a month (the third Thursday of every month at 10 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. Following each Metro Intel meeting is the MARCAN meeting.
