"In spring 2002, law enforcement executives and intelligence experts attending the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Criminal Intelligence Sharing Summit recognized that local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies and the organizations that represent them must work towards common goals--gathering information and producing intelligence within their agency and sharing that intelligence with other law enforcement and public safety agencies. Summit participants called for the creation of a nationally coordinated criminal intelligence council that would develop and oversee a national intelligence plan.1 In response to this crucial need, the U.S. Department of Justice's Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) Intelligence Working Group (GIWG) was formed.

This report outlines specific 'action steps' that can be taken immediately by almost any agency and what can be expected by performing those steps. The portion of the Plan titled 'The Rationale for the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan' should be carefully reviewed, as it provides an in-depth discussion of the issues and recommendations presented in the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan."
