This course provides attendees with a more broad-based view of the multiple, inter-related skills and techniques used for transforming narcotics data into useful work products. The course uses the “Intelligence Cycle” to systematically process data from raw, unrelated information into “actionable” end products that provide a clearer understanding of the problems faced by police agencies today. In other words, students learn how to effectively connect the dots! This course offers a blend of “old school” tips, techniques, and methodology combined with some of the most advanced, comprehensive tools and resources available to the police industry. Uniform officers can immediately put aspects of the course to work as effectively as detectives or criminal analysts. The “Intelligence Cycle” is introduced early in the course and is used throughout the course in a practical case-development project that requires them to apply their new found knowledge.
