Abstract

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 revealed the importance of enhancing U.S. intelligence operations. Since then, intelligence operations have been reviewed, studied, and slowly transformed. Most efforts have focused on reorganizing intelligence infrastructures at the federal level, and corresponding efforts have been made to enhance state and local law enforcement intelligence operations. However, there is a lack of polices, procedures, and training for gathering and assessing important information. To correct this problem, fundamental changes are needed in the way information is gathered, assessed, and redistributed, which require increased collaboration in information gathering and sharing.
