April 26, 2011 by

0

In Part I of this two-part Intel Intelligencer, I talked about how our two-part article and podcast with Patrick Ryder of the Nassau County Police Department’s Asset Forfeiture and Intelligence Unit sparked an interesting online debate. Sadly, the debate took place on another online forum, depriving Police-Led Intelligence of the traffic that it would have […]

Intel Intelligencer: Debating Asset Forfeiture as a Funding Source for Intel

April 25, 2011 by

2

This week’s Intel Intelligencer points at some documents, works, articles and government guidelines around the topic of asset forfeiture. It is a very long (nearly 3000 word) article, so I’ve broken it into two pieces; this, Part I, is 1500 words long and sets forth the arguments that it may well be a dangerous thing […]

April 4, 2011 by

The Intel Intelligencer this week looks at a paper which is not new – drafts of this have been circulating since December, 2010 – but is important as it addresses the important question of how we as law enforcement crime and intelligence analysis view our role in defending the homeland. It is equally important reading […]

On Monday, our Intel Intelligencer highlighted Emily Berman’s report at The Brennan Center, Domestic Intelligence: New Powers, New Risks, in which she proposes changes to the guidelines for domestic surveillance – primarily by the FBI, but in general as well.

The Intel Intelligencer: Berman (Domestic Intel); McEwen (Mobile); Eways (Gang Intel)

March 28, 2011 by

0

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: there is a duality, a dichotomy, present in many of the aspects of things we use in our law enforcement careers. Like a hammer – which can be used to build a house or kill someone – many of the tools we use have a double-edged nature. […]

Last week, when Eric Olson joined Dave and me on the Police Led Intelligence Podcast, we were discussing ways in which agencies could better prepare patrol officers to gather and report on the rich intelligence they naturally come by on a day-to-day basis. Eric was talking about how he thinks about ways to automate thought […]

Two New Intel Publications

March 21, 2011 by

0

One of the goals of this publication is to help disseminate information to the law enforcement intelligence community. We’re not trying to set up a new book review site, but we have often found blogs that point to new research or publication to be very helpful. So we’re taking the idea out for a spin […]
