Relationship of Law Enforcement Operations and Intelligence
General Concepts of Law Enforcement Intelligence
Critical Functions

Law Enforcement Intelligence Critical Functions
was developed to serve three different, yet related functions:

  • Assist the law enforcement operational units to identify and understand the guidance they must provide to the intelligence unit supporting their operation or investigation.
  • Assist the law enforcement intelligence unit to understand the types and forms of intelligence operational and investigative units require to perform their various law enforcement functions
  • Assist the law enforcement mission managers in understand the functions of both enforcement and intelligence units, and how those units interact to provide a successfully law enforcement outcome.

Initially most of the contents of the book were developed as instructional handouts used to accompany various training classes I have conducted while working as a police officer or on active duty. The notes, along with other research, have been assembled for this publication.
