This webinar provides an overview of the Phoenix Police Department’s Intelligence Officer Program. This innovative patrol-driven initiative was piloted in 2014 as part of a collaboration with Arizona State University. It aims to create an interactive web of intelligence to help the department to become more intelligence led by integrating and promoting intelligence gathering and information sharing into the patrol function. This webinar will discuss the Intelligence Officer Program’s history, key components, and impacts, the benefits of researcher-practitioner partnerships, and recommendations for establishing an intelligence officer program.
During this Webinar, we will discuss:
- What a patrol-driven intelligence officer program can look like and how it can function
- The benefits of collaboration between law enforcement and academic institutions
- Recommendations and considerations for implementing an intelligence officer program
