"The absence of law enforcement intelligence analysis programs in academia has created a serious gap in the Nation's ability to effectively protect itself from the terrorist threat. Academic institutions that teach analysis are primarily focused on foreign or national intelligence. Academia must begin addressing the need to educate law enforcement intelligence analysts. Through an examination of current intelligence analyst programs, surveys of law enforcement intelligence analysts, and research of U.S. and foreign law enforcement intelligence analyst programs, this thesis will explore how law enforcement analyst organizations and academia should provide law enforcement analyst instruction. Each chapter addresses a different component of the challenge in the education and training law enforcement analysts. This thesis also provides recommendations for future law enforcement analyst instruction."
