  • Certificate | 09741 Criminal Intelligence Analysis Certificate

In this program, you will learn the intelligence process and the importance of analysis, how it has evolved and become a critical part of strategic planning and direction for an organization.

What You Will Learn

Intelligence is not limited to the law enforcement environment as we continue to see the role expand into other areas including the financial Industry, insurance and government ministries.

Intelligence gathering casts a much wider net now than at any other time in history. At a time when a pro-active approach is top of the list of goals for organizations we have the opportunity to make better use of our information gathering and data analysis.

Raw intelligence is meaningless without analysts to contextualize, relate disparate pieces of information and build meaningful clusters of data. Intelligence analysis helps you to understand the bigger picture and provide insight to decision-makers by providing tactical and strategic intelligence reports. The course will be exciting, engaging and has been designed to help the student maximize their learning with a variety of scenarios that will help them understand how analysis relates to their chosen work environment or career path. You will learn about techniques, tools and the legal aspects of criminal intelligence analysis.

The program will be of interest to seasoned professionals working in a range of analytical roles who wish to build upon or refine their skills in the area of criminal intelligence. It will also appeal to those wishing to pursue a career in analysis, investigations or law enforcement.
