The National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) at Louisiana State University (LSU), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), will be instructing the DHS approved training course entitled "Fundamentals of Criminal Intelligence" (AWR-315).

This awareness-level course presents participants with the fundamental core capabilities required for intelligence analysis from an all-crimes, all-hazards perspective, encompassing traditional crimes, domestic and international acts of terrorism, and other potential crises. It introduces entry-level intelligence personnel to intelligence and the difference between information and intelligence, the Intelligence Community, and the responsibilities of an intelligence analyst. The course teaches participants the goals of and uses of intelligence analysis, the range of intelligence customers, and the importance of having a thorough understanding of the customer’s intelligence need. It reviews and examines each of the six steps in the intelligence process and the importance of critical and creative thinking to each step. Intelligence-led policing, the information sharing environment, and suspicious activity reporting are reviewed, as well as legal authorities and guidance including privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties legislation. The course also reviews the benefits of forming strategic partnerships and collaborative networks.

This course is designed for law enforcement, security managers, Investigators, Analysts, Corrections, and Fusion center personnel.
