Conceptual Frameworks for the Integration of Strategic Intelligence



Based on the case study findings, this chapter unpacks the key factors inhibiting the effectiveness of strategic transnational organized crime (TOC) intelligence within the selected law enforcement agencies and addresses them through the development of two conceptual frameworks. The first conceptual framework focuses on the integration of strategic TOC intelligence within LEAs, while the second seeks to enhance the interface between strategic TOC intelligence, the policy process and strategic decision-making. By considering the specific needs of law enforcement decision-makers and looking beyond the traditions of the national security application of intelligence the conceptual frameworks offer an alternative approach for maximizing the use of strategic intelligence in the fight against TOC.
