Core Criminal Intelligence Training Standards for United States Law Enforcement and Other Criminal Justice Agencies [open pdf - 361KB]
The purpose of these standards is to establish core concepts, principles, and practices within the law enforcement criminal intelligence function. This, in turn, will promote the sharing of information and increase cooperation among law enforcement to better protect the public from criminal enterprises and threats. The Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) Intelligence Working Group (GIWG) Training Committee adopted the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Summit participants' training recommendations that all levels of law enforcement need to be trained in intelligence. Otherwise, intelligence could become solely the focus of a small unit within the department, rather than being part of the core mission in which all levels of the department are involved. The GIWG Training Committee focused on developing a train-the-trainer component and establishing standards for police executives, managers of criminal intelligence/investigative functions, general law enforcement officers, intelligence officers, and intelligence analysts. The Committee's first goal was to identify specific training topics and issues for each level of personnel involved in the intelligence process. Their second goal was to make specific recommendations for training objectives and the delivery of training. Their third goal is to work with relevant agencies and groups to develop model curricula.
