Annotation: This guide presents a sustainable professional career path for analysts working within State, local, tribal, and territorial organizations, with a focus on the responsibilities of law enforcement leaders who hire and train analysts.
Abstract: As used in this guide, the term “analyst” refers to an individual working as an intelligence analyst; however, other analysts, including crime analysts, are encouraged to use this guide as appropriate. The analyst’s role in public safety continues to evolve and increase in importance among law enforcement and homeland security agencies, including State and major urban-area fusion centers. The career path of the analyst is related to the development and enhancement of analytic-related knowledge, skills, and abilities over three overarching analyst levels (basic, intermediate, and advanced) and the training recommended for each level. The four “Road Map” goals outlined in this document are designed to assist leadership personnel in understanding and establishing an analytic component within their agencies. One goal of the “Road Map” is to identify common knowledge, skills, and abilities for basic, intermediate, and advanced analysts. A second goal is to provide recommended training baselines for each level. A third goal is to articulate a common career path for analysts; and a fourth goal is to create a professional culture for analysts. Tables show the competencies, skills and abilities, and education and training for each of the three levels on the “Road Map.” Appended minimum standards for each of the three career levels
