Recognized internationally for his analytical skills, techniques and practices, and crime-mapping expertise, Ronczkowski has presented analytical material at numerous conferences and workshops for various international associations and the National Institute of Justice. He managed a county-wide analytical intelligence unit for over 8 years and has written analytical policy, procedures, and training protocols and has developed analytical databases and information resources. He also served as a certified Florida law enforcement instructor, field training officer, and supervisor. Ronczkowski has supervised various criminal investigative units, including serving several years with the FBI and U.S. Marshal's fugitive task forces. He is an authorized Environmental Systems Research Institute (ArcView) instructor, and teaches crime and incident mapping and analysis for the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (since January 2000). Ronczkowski is the coauthor of "The Robbery Clearinghouse: Successful Real-Time Intelligence Analysis" ( Police Chief Magazine, September 1999) and Tactical/Investigative Analysis of Targeted Crimes (Advanced Crime Mapping Topics, NIJ — Crime Mapping and Analysis Program, April 2002). He earned a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice and a masters of public administration degree from Florida Atlantic University.

In response to the current terrorist threat, law enforcement agencies at every level have expanded technological and intelligence-gathering initiatives in order to support new tactical, investigative and deployment strategies. 

The demand for homeland security requires that agencies hire professional and specially-trained criminal and intelligence analysts to find and pre-empt any potential threat. Agencies must now determine how to train these analysts and properly identify and respond to critical intelligence. 

Terrorism and Organized Hate Crime: Intelligence Gathering, Analysis, and Investigations provides a framework for exploring the issues that all new or existing analysts and investigators must face, including what information to gather, how to analyze it, and the effectiveness of crime analysts investigating terrorism. 

Training in proactive analytical-based investigation has been around for less than thirty years. Events now mandate that unavoidable importance of understanding "terrorism analysis." 

This expert overview provides the crucial foundation of criminal intelligence gathering and analysis and defines the nature of terrorism and its practitioners, subjects of vital importance if local agencies are to play an effective role in the battle against terror.
