Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) is the concept that law enforcement efforts be directed through information that has been collected by specifically trained personnel. While this style of policing is already aiding law enforcement, it does not come without controversy. The distrust of the police that resonates within communities, especially within minority communities, hinders the likelihood of much-needed advancements being implemented, and this leads to missed opportunities for law enforcement. I plan to review recommendations made by federal law enforcement agencies, as well as similar interest groups and police science firms in order to discover how ILP stands at present. Does ILP need advancement, and, if so, what could be done to advance ILP programs; what steps could be taken to quell the public and political skepticism of ILP; what methods could be implemented to make ILP more efficient; and what media highlights the public's fear of advancements surrounding this field? My research is aimed at proving that ILP programs need to be advanced and that the public has nothing to fear from these advancements, both of which will be proven through an in-depth analysis of various police departments and consultations with members of the intelligence community, as well as technological and police science firms.
