Annotation: This booklet presents the standards developed by the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA) for the education, training, professional development, and certification of intelligence analysts, as well as standards for analytic products/processes.
Abstract: The first seven standards presented pertain to intelligence analysts or those who perform the analytic function in agencies. The mission of the intelligence analyst, as described in the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan (NCISP), is to research and analyze raw data, apply critical thinking and logic skills to develop sound conclusions and recommendations, and provide actionable intelligence in a cohesive and clear manner to management. The education standard for analysts is a 4-year college degree or commensurate experience, defined as no less than 5 years of previous research/analysis/intelligence-oriented experience with a 2-year degree, or no less than 10 years of previous research/analysis/intelligence-oriented experience with less than a 2-year degree. The standard for initial analytic training is a minimum of 40 hours training provided by instructors with law enforcement analytic experience. Core topics that should be covered in training are listed. The remaining standards related to the development of an analyst's professional preparation pertain to continuing education, professional development, certification, professional liaison, and analytic attributes. Eighteen standards focus on intelligence analytic products/processes. These standards address planning, direction, collection, collection followup, legal constraints, evaluation, collation, analytic accuracy, computerized analysis, and analytic product content. Remaining standards for analytic products/processes pertain to analytic outcomes, dissemination plan, analytic report, analytic product format, analytic testimony, data source attribution, analytic feedback, and analytic product evaluation. 19 references and appended law enforcement intelligence analysis definitions
