Intelligence Reform at the State Level: Lessons Learned

In August of 2014, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (OHSP) began a dramatic reformation of its intelligence capabilities. The new Analysis Bureau was charged with becoming the primary state subject matter experts on terrorism issues for the Governor, Legislature, and other state entities. In order to fulfill that mandate, the Analysis Bureau rebuilt its entire operation and created a highly skilled and motivated team. 

This presentation discussed lessons learned from the Analysis Bureau’s first year of operation and how they can be applied to other agencies at little cost.
