Knowing how intelligence analysis can help solve problems and how problem-solving can improve the effectiveness of intelligence analysis will aid any police practitioner interested in reducing crime or disorder. This manual fuses aspects of intelligence analysis with Problem-Oriented Policing. It is focused on the analysis of intelligence and has been written for three groups in local policing agencies: (1) intelligence officers and analysts, (2) crime analysts who may be called upon to use intelligence information and, (3) police managers who supervise crime and intelligence analysts.
