City hires crime analyst


Malden has hired a crime analyst to help the Police Department identify emerging crime patterns. Robert McIntire will review the city’s police reports daily with the goal of identifying crime trends and hot spots of illegal activity in Malden. “If burglaries are reported in a certain area of the city or a pattern emerges of items being stolen from cars, Rob will analyze the data to predict whether or not another incident is likely and when it may occur,” Police Chief Kevin Molis said in a prepared statement. “This will assist us with long-term solutions.”
