Information vs intelligence
Information vs. Intelligence

  • Information

    • Reports about an event or activity

  • Intelligence

    • Evaluated, analyzed information put into context upon which decisions can be made

Basic Elements of Intelligence

(Godfrey and Harris, 1971; xiii)


THE MOST VALUABLE ANALYTIC TOOL

+ training + experience



Define the need

Support complex investigations into organized criminal activity

Provide guidance to deployment of resources

Provide situational awareness to decision makers in a particular area


Planning
Planning

  • What are your sources of information?

  • What will be your process to get information from sources?

  • What output what is needed by users?


Collection
Collection

  • What’s out there, tried and tested?

  • Does what you’ve defined exist?

    • Product Demonstrations

    • User/Technology feedback

  • If it doesn’t exist, what then?


Collation
Collation

Compare apples and apples

Define the criteria across the board; what functionality does the unit need from the software?

Develop functionality matrix


Analysis evaluation
Analysis/Evaluation

  • Compare and contrast...

  • Cost of

  • Software?

  • Licenses?

  • Hardware?

  • Support packages?


Re evaluation feedback
Re-evaluation / Feedback

  • Vendors are not all created equal

  • improvements based on input from the field?

  • New versions included?

  • reputation is important to smart businesses-

  • go to other customers

Technology

Intelligence/Tips/Leads

Database


Report/Incident Management

Purpose: To identify initial, preliminary information about an incident that may or may not to lead to future intelligence or an investigation.

Investigative Case Management

Purpose: To track investigations and leads and activities conducted in support of investigations in order to preserve a record for investigative and prosecutorial purposes, as well as to manage work flow of investigators and analysts.

Intelligence/Tips/Leads Management

Purpose: To collect supporting information about organized criminal activity and the businesses or people associated with it. Supporting information has value but may not meet initial the burden of proof for a separate investigation on its own.


Supporting Technology

Word Processing

Purpose: To produce text documents, including bulletins, fact sheets, investigative summaries, and analytical reports.


Supporting Technology

Spreadsheet

Purpose: To organize numerical data in a column-and-row format for summarization, calculations, comparison of data and data charting.


Supporting Technology

Relational Database

Purpose: To organize data in relation to other data in a format of records and fields arranged into several tables in order to determine commonalities and relationships among data. The relational database tool can also be used for record keeping.


Supporting Technology

Mapping/Geographic Information System (GIS)

Purpose: To display geographic data using points or shapes corresponding with specific locations or areas on a map to aid in crime mapping and strategic intelligence charting.


Supporting Technology

Public Information Database Resources

Purpose: To provide access to compiled public data sources with one comprehensive search.


Supporting Technology

Presentation Software

Purpose: To produce professional looking slide show presentations, with the capability to incorporate text, photographs, graphics, and animation.

Supporting Technology

Graphics Software

Purpose: To illustrate concepts or conclusions using graphic arts.

Supporting Technology

PDF File Creation Software

Purpose: Allows the creation of PDF format files. PDF files can be viewed and printed on any platform (Macintosh®, Microsoft® Windows®, UNIX®), thereby facilitating the sharing of information.


Supporting Technology

Statistical Analysis Software

Purpose: To analyze large amounts of data to identify trends.


Supporting Technology

Publishing Software

Purpose: Produce professional looking publications, such as newsletters or bulletins


Supporting Technology

Communications/Telephone (Toll) Record Software

Purpose: To organize structured information collected from telephone billing systems (including cellular phones), pen registers, and dialed number recorders for analysis


Supporting Technology

Timeline/Flowcharting

Purpose: To display chronological events in an easy-to-understand format.


Supporting Technology

Link Analysis

Purpose: To link associated information from a structured data source and display the links between entities in a graphic display. Also useful for documenting data sources and can help FIND the links in a large, complex data set. This type of software can also include a timeline or flowcharting capability.

Supporting Technology

Data Mining /Text Mining

Purpose: Automates the process of determining patterns and relationships in extremely large volumes of information (either statistical or in text) too large for an individual to manage.


Supporting Technology

Data Visualization

Purpose: To automatically display information in formats such as graphs and pie charts. This capability can sometimes be part of a larger software application, such as spreadsheet software
