The prefect emphasized the need to be updated in terms of data analysis, especially since the crime, according to the police institution, has been mutating and adding new challenges to the PDI, so they seek to “have a superlative level to strengthen our competences and that is where the PDI is linked with different strategic entities to strengthen these competences, in this case the ULS ”.
For the professionals of the Office of Institutional Analysis of the ULS, this work will allow to transfer knowledge, which is the fundamental and key idea of the University, to carry out exchange of technical experience, modeling, analysis, collection and treatment of information.
