The value of intelligence cannot be understated as it can drive forward lines of enquiry, allow decisions to be made about tactical options, priorities or where and when resources should be deployed to maximum effect. Intelligence is the lifeblood to all sorts of activities and investigations, but it needs to be conducted in the right way to be of value whilst maintaining the security of the intelligence sources sitting behind it.
The aim of this course is to provide Field Intelligence Officers (FIO’s) with the knowledge and understanding to carry out their role in an ethical manner in line with legislation, codes of practice, standard operating procedures and recognised good practice.
The course is available in several options. These options allow the delegates to examine the issues of Covert Human Intelligence Sources (CHIS) in more detail and can be designed for the FIO’s to support a CHIS handling team as an Intelligence Officer.
