Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT)
Over several decades, law enforcement has tried different methods and strategies to reduce crime and homeland security issues in a proactive manner, as opposed to reactive. Law enforcement agencies have been plagued with their own issues in inter-agency cooperation, as well as information sharing with external agencies. Some citizens in the various jurisdictions across the country still do not trust or have a positive relationship with law enforcement in their own communities. Because of these issues, I think law enforcement agencies should establish intelligence-led policing (ILP) in their organizations. There will be citizen concerns over data analysis and civil rights violations, but these concerns can be overcome by implementing agency policy for proper intelligence processes and adhering to current federal rules and regulations. Law enforcement agencies can evaluate their resources, change the agency culture with proper leadership, and work with their communities to make ILP work for their organization.
