Intelligence Led Decision Making

  • Monmouth County, NJ (map)

The NJ Regional Intelligence Academy (RIA) will be hosting a one day workshop titled: “Intelligence Led Decision Making”.

COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.


In order to maximize the effectiveness of a leader’s decision, it is critical that certain processes be in place to ensure the most effective and efficient allocation of resources occurs and results from a systematic analysis of known and unknown factors related to the decision. These characteristics are fundamentally connected to the intelligence-led approach to decision-making. 

To implement effective crime strategies, senior leadership in any law enforcement organization must have a sufficient understanding of the operating environment in order to draw appropriate conclusions and create priorities for resources. Equally important is understanding how to communicate ideas and strategies to decision makers and how to operationalize ideas that stem from a decision. Intelligence-led decision making is intrinsically woven within the strategic planning process, which will also be discussed in this program.


This program is designed for law enforcement, homeland security analysts, and emergency responders.


For questions or registration, please email the point of contact Michael Smith at or call 609-588-2498.

The RIA is a training partnership amongst the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (OHSP), the New Jersey State Police (NJSP) and the public safety agencies represented in the New Jersey Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) region.
