Cara Steele would seem to have a job lifted straight from a TV show.

Steele admits her role as crime analyst is much like Penelope Garcia’s role on the CBS show Criminal Minds.

In other words, Steele analyzes data to spot trends and lets others know not only the recent trends but where the next similar crime could occur.
