“Thanks to the Intelligence Writing and Briefing class, my reports were heavily used in the search and arrest warrants because of the organization and clearness of the information.” -Anonymous
“After completing this class, I took the information I learned and immediately applied it to the creation and formatting of intelligence products as well to the organizing and classifying of information and intelligence. Since applying what I learned in the class, the police departments have found the intelligence products impressive, credible, and useful. They have arrested and charged individuals involved in criminal activity at the events, or have completed other enforcement actions that positively impact the safety of the venues and communities in general.” -Waukegan, Illinois
