  Annotation: This is an overview of a plan for implementing the framework for intelligence-led policing (ILP) within a law enforcement agency.
Abstract: The ILP approach is a process for improving law enforcement agency effectiveness. The plan also presents an organizational approach for collecting and using many sources of information and intelligence that can assist in making timely and targeted strategic, operational, and tactical decisions. This guide focuses on how the ILP framework can support existing policing strategies. The key components of ILP are a commitment to and involvement in ILP by agency executives; collaboration and coordination throughout agency levels; tasking and coordination; collection, planning, and operation; analytical capabilities; awareness, education, and training; end-user feedback; and an evaluation of the process with a view toward improving its functioning. A key element of all these components is effective information-sharing processes. Understanding and implementing each of these components enable the planning, organizational, and administrative steps needed to implement ILP. This guide also identifies potential challenges in implementing ILP and offers suggestions for addressing these challenges. Appended additional ILP case studies, a description of the intelligence cycle, and a listing of resources
