Crime Strategies Unit

The Santa Clara County Crime Strategies Unit (CSU) studies crime trends and prosecution practices to ensure that police and prosecutors are well-informed and focused on the major crime issues facing our community.

The Unit writes multiple reports for the public and routinely gives data presentations to community groups, police officers, prosecutors, County stakeholders and the media. CSU is at the center of several large crime-reduction initiatives, including the Gun Related Intelligence Program, which links shootings through ballistic evidence. Another major area of focus is identifying and prosecuting large burglary/robbery strings.
