LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Among the graves at River Valley Cemetery is a murder mystery.

Hundreds of crime-prevention experts converge on Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – At least 400 brilliant minds in crime analysis are in Louisville for the 26th annual International Crime Analysts Conference, where experts will share tactics, strategies and new technology to help solve crime.

Now that the conference is in Louisville, LMPD officials are taking full advantage of the opportunity to find new ways to help solve violent crime locally.

Rogers manages the team of 19 analysts who work within the Louisville Metro Police Department. A year of violent crime means Rogers is constantly looking for new strategies in prevention, like predictive policing or forecasting for policing.
