Efforts in Reducing Crime Earns Crime Analyst Special Honors

Posted: 05/01/2014
May 1, 2014 - Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Police Chief David Rausch named Christine Mullan the Civilian Employee of the Year for the Knoxville Police Department. Ms. Mullan is a mapping specialist in the Crime Analysis Unit and has been with the department since June 2006.

Chief Rausch said that Ms. Mullan's primary job function as a mapping specialist is to create interactive maps used in weekly Compstat presentations. These maps are essential to officers and investigators during proactive enforcement planning. In addition, Ms. Mullan is involved in special events mapping as well as mapping for the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.

Outside of her mapping expertise, Ms. Mullan is involved in the analysis of telephone records for missing person investigators. She also produces the property crime top 10 offender list, the suspicious pawn activity report, and repeat offender information.

Chief Rausch said, "Ms. Mullan's attention to detail in these areas along with her personal vigilance have connected several offenders to crimes and provided necessary information to close several cases."

Ms. Mullan also serves on the Search and Rescue Team where she is an invaluable asset as a search team member.

Chief Rausch said, "Christine's quantifiable work supports the department's efforts in crime reduction. To that end, her work has resulted in identifying suspects and solving several criminal cases."

Her professionalism and work ethic reflect the high standards of the police department and are a credit to both the department and the City of Knoxville," Chief Rausch concluded.
