Operational analysis reports
Operational analysis aims to achieve a specific law enforcement outcome such as an arrest, a seizure, the forfeiture of assets or criminal proceeds, and/or the disruption of a criminal enterprise. Specifically, this research aims to identify:
- links between suspects;
- the specific role a person(s) of interest plays in criminal activities;
- investigative leads, and
- information gaps.
These products include database crosscheck reports, crime-specific alerts, suspect reports, investigative lead reports, media content notifications (e.g. social media), and the outcomes of operations that we coordinate.
Strategic analysis reports
Strategic intelligence analysis provides a broad assessment of a specific crime threat or trend, or of criminal behaviour in a particular environment. We examine the different factors that impact a type of crime with a view to forecasting how it may evolve in the near to mid-term future (i.e. escalate or deescalate.)
These intelligence products are intended for both police on the ground and their hierarchies. They include threat and risk assessments (for a specific region, crime, or event), crime trend reports, environmental scanning reports, and early warning alerts.
