The ability of law enforcement agencies to manage intelligence is key to fighting the war on terror, and a critical foundation of intelligence-led policing is proper analysis of the information gained. Terrorism and Organized Hate Crime: Intelligence Gathering, Analysis, and Investigations, Third Edition provides a methodical approach to analyzing homeland security needs, enabling the law enforcement community to understand the vital role it plays in the war on terrorism.
Using techniques applicable to the private and the public sector, the book combines academic, research, and practitioner perspectives to establish a protocol for effectively gathering, analyzing, investigating, and disseminating criminal intelligence. The book demonstrates how to recognize the indicators of an impending act of terrorism or mass violence, how to deter an attack, and how to transform information into intelligence to meet community demands for safety and security.
New chapters in this third edition focus on source development and their use in investigations, the role of fusion centers, terrorism financing, the handling of classified materials, and the National Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative. The book also discusses pre-incident indicators, the radicalization process, and behavioral traits associated with terrorism.
A one-stop resource for the homeland security, intelligence analyst, and investigative professional, this volume arms those tasked with protecting the public with a solid blueprint for combating and investigating crimes associated with terrorism and hate.
