LEIU Continues to Work with IACP on Criminal Intelligence Recommendations

December 18, 2008

In March 2002, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) hosted a criminal intelligence sharing summit, with the goal of enhancing the sharing of intelligence among national, state and local agencies. LEIU was invited to participate in this summit, which resulted in the publication of the first IACP Intelligence Summit report (available at http://www.theiacp.org/research/CriminalIntelligenceSharingReport.pdf). LEIU leaders also subsequently helped develop the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan and establish the Criminal Intelligence Coordinating Council.

Now, LEIU leaders have helped conduct the second IACP Intelligence Summit. The “National Summit on Intelligence: Gathering, Sharing, Analysis, and Use after 9-11” is the result of an event held in Washington, DC, in the fall of 2007. The goal of this second IACP Intelligence Summit, co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), and the Office of the Program Manager for Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE), was to evaluate both the progress made by law enforcement agencies in the realm of criminal intelligence sharing since the first Intelligence Summit held in 2002 and work remaining to be accomplished.

LEIU is proud to continue providing leadership and promoting professionalism in the criminal intelligence field. The report on this second IACP Intelligence Summit is available at http://www.theiacp.org/documents/pdfs/PressRelease/IntelSummitReportb.pdf
