Best Practices – Lessons We Learned
One of the most important “lessons to be learned” that we were exposed to during our research was the need to invest more time and resources in proper intelligence gathering and, within the context of this activity, the most important part is the creation of the Intelligence File. This chapter is based on the information we received from the police agencies we visited and conducted our research at and, in addition, on personal experience of one of the authors who was involved during her law enforcement career in creating and maintaining Intel files.
