International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts - Event Information
Criminal Intelligence & Analysis Training
In these turbulent times of increasing demands on resources, the heightened sophistication of criminals, the rise of predatory gang activity and the multitude of illicit activities that threaten our communities each day, the need for a responsible, proactive approach for determining and gauging the risks posed by crime and criminals is of critical importance.
This one-week (40-hour) “hands-on” classroom-based course shows you how to use the “intelligence cycle” to easily guide the transformation of your raw collected data into actionable intelligence. You will learn how to recognize the hidden characteristics, protocols, and behaviors associated with complex criminal events; identify and link conspiratorial relationships and networks; discover the connections between criminality and finances and–in the segment on legal issues, ethical practices and 28 CFR Part 23 guidelines—how to effectively collect (covertly, overtly, and electronically), monitor, organize, store, analyze and use intelligence data relating to a wide range of criminal endeavors. You will also learn how to develop, manage, support, and successfully conduct analyses using a variety of collation and graphic management techniques. This knowledge can then be applied to the more complex investigations of crimes committed by predatory criminals, criminal enterprises, gangs, and the criminal conspirators who engage in economic/white collar crimes, drug/narcotic and sex offenses, human and weapons trafficking, identity theft and fraud, counterfeiting, corruption, and serial crimes.
Skill-building exercises enhance the “learn-by-doing” nature of the program. Actual investigations and criminal intelligence missions are also examined to further an understanding of the methods and techniques taught in the class and to demonstrate their practical application in today’s criminal environment.
The course curriculum meets and exceeds the training recommendations contained in the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan (NCISP) and the Law Enforcement Analytic Standards developed by the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA). The NCISP is the most widely accepted source of guidance currently available for intelligence operations and training programs that support law enforcement
efforts to establish a capacity for Intelligence-led policing. It is also POST certified in many states.
You Should Attend If:
You are a newly-assigned law enforcement or corporate intelligence analyst, or a narcotics, gang or vice investigator, intelligence officer or analyst assigned to a fusion center, Homeland Security detail, terrorism or other specialized task force either within or external to your agency
You are an experienced analyst, officer or investigator who has received little formal training related to the criminal intelligence process and function
You now—or may later—supervise analysts, officers, investigators, a task force, first responders or other personnel who would benefit from a coordinated approach to developing and supporting criminal investigations
You are employed by a prosecution unit that prepares the types of cases produced by the above personnel
What You Will Learn:
This course will provide you with an arsenal of techniques you can use to uncover hidden criminal activity; develop, organize and link disparate data; support emerging and ongoing criminal investigations; and identify the relationships between people, organizations and criminal events as well as between finances, proceeds and assets.
You will learn what criminal intelligence is—and what it is not—and how its real-world application can benefit 21st century policing. You will also learn how to produce actionable intelligence, how to apply it to criminal investigations, how to deliver dynamic intelligence briefings and how to present your material in court proceedings.
Designed for all federal, state, municipal, and military intelligence officers and analysts, this course will demystify essential professional skills involving:

About Our Crime Analysis Programs
Law enforcement officials send their sworn officers and civilian personnel to our crime analysis courses because of our proven ability to provide them with high-quality, performance-oriented training. Class exercises are based on real-world crime problems analysts are expected to solve each day. As such, students return to their agencies with not only the knowledge of what they should do, but, more importantly, how they should do it. Skills are developed by instructors who are intimately familiar with crime analysis techniques, and by the students’ use of our comprehensive, easy-to-understand course materials. These elements contribute to the continued popularity of our crime analysis training programs. Our success, however, comes from our achievement of one important goal: We Turn Theory Into Practice.™
