Enhancing the Law Enforcement Intelligence Capacity: Recommendations from the IACP's Strategic Planning Session   [open pdf - 234KB]

From the Document: "Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, expectations for comprehensive, relevant, and reliable intelligence gathering have grown at an exponential pace. In prior years, the responsibility for these activities has traditionally fallen with the intelligence community, often in collaboration with federal partners. However, as global events, including terrorism, continue to manifest themselves in ways that directly affect local communities in the United States, it has never been more evident that the functions of intelligence gathering and information sharing must be woven into the daily fabric of state, local, and tribal (SLT) law enforcement. This fabric should encompass not only the efforts of police officers, state troopers, tribal police, and sheriffs but the fusion centers and the other resources dedicated to the collection and analysis of information. [...] To thoroughly and comprehensively examine the issues, our participants represented: small, midsize, and large jurisdictions; rural, suburban, and urban agencies; state agencies and fusion centers; and partner associations and federal entities. During the course of the day and a half strategic planning session in pursuit of more effective information sharing practices, participants discussed a variety of topics that have challenged both law enforcement and the intelligence community over time."
