About the Program

In these turbulent times of increasing demands on resources,

the heightened sophistication of criminals, the rise of predatory

gang activity and the multitude of illicit activities that threaten our

communities each day, the need for a responsible, proactive

approach for determining and gauging the risks posed by crime

and criminals is of critical importance.

This one-week (36-hours) “hands-on” course shows you how

to use the “intelligence cycle” to easily guide the transformation

of your raw collected data into actionable intelligence.

Once trained, you will be able to recognize the hidden characteristics,

protocols, and behaviors associated with complex

criminal events; identify and link conspiratorial relationships

and networks; discover the connections between criminality

and finances; and effectively monitor, collect (covertly, overtly,

and electronically), organize, and analyze data relating to a wide

range of criminal endeavors. You will also learn how to develop,

manage, support, and successfully conduct analyses using a

variety of collation and graphic management techniques. This

knowledge can then be applied to the more complex investigations

of crimes committed by predatory criminals, criminal enterprises,

gangs, and the criminal conspirators who engage in

economic/white collar crimes, drug/narcotic and sex offenses,

human and weapons trafficking, identity theft and fraud, counterfeiting,

corruption, and serial crimes.

Skill-building exercises enhance the “learn-by-doing” nature of

the program. Actual investigations and criminal intelligence missions

are also examined to further an understanding of the

methods and techniques taught in the class and to demonstrate

their practical application in today’s criminal environment.

The course curriculum is based on training recommendations

contained in the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan

(NCISP). The NCISP is the most widely accepted source of

guidance currently available for intelligence operations and training

programs that support law enforcement efforts to establish

a capacity for Intelligence-led policing. It is also POST certified

in many states.

You Should Attend IF:

You are a newly-assigned law enforcement or corporate

intelligence analyst, or a narcotics, gang or vice investigator,

intelligence officer or analyst assigned to a fusion

center, Homeland Security detail, terrorism or other specialized

task force either within or external to your agency

You are an experienced analyst, officer or investigator

who has received little formal training related to the criminal

intelligence process and function

You now—or may later—supervise analysts, officers, investigators,

a task force, first responders or other personnel

who would benefit from a coordinated approach

to developing and supporting criminal investigations

You are employed by a prosecution unit that prepares the

types of cases produced by the personnel described


What You Will Learn

This course will provide you with an arsenal of techniques

you can use to uncover hidden criminal activity; develop,

organize and link disparate data; support emerging and ongoing

criminal investigations; and identify the relationships

between people, organizations and criminal events as well

as between finances, proceeds and assets.

You will learn what criminal intelligence is—and what it is

not—and how its real-world application can benefit 21st

century policing. You will also learn how to produce actionable

intelligence, how to apply it to criminal investigations,

how to deliver dynamic intelligence briefings and how to

present your material in court proceedings.

Designed for all federal, state, municipal, and military intelligence

officers and analysts, this course will demystify essential

professional skills involving:

Operational Issues

Identifying and Defining What Intelligence is and What it

is not

The Mission, Objectives and Products of Criminal Intelligence

and How it Benefits Today’s Policing Efforts

The Differences Between Information, Investigation and


The 5-Step Process of the Intelligence Cycle

better when you apply fresh ideas and techniques. We’ve

made sure our seminars give you exactly what you need to

put you at your peak!

About Our Criminal Intelligence

and Analysis Program

Law enforcement officials send their sworn officers and civilian

personnel to our Criminal Intelligence and Analysis

courses because of our proven ability to provide them with

high-quality, performance-oriented training. Class exercises

are based on real-world crime problems officers, investigators

and analysts are expected to solve each day. As such,

students return to their agencies with not only the knowledge

of what they should do, but, more importantly, how

they should do it. Skills are developed by instructors who

are intimately familiar with criminal intelligence analysis

techniques, and by the students’ use of our comprehensive,

easy-to-understand course materials. These elements

contribute to the continued popularity of our Criminal

Intelligence and Analysis training programs. Our success,

however, comes from our achievement of one important goal:

We turn Theory Into Practice.™

What Others Say

About Our Training

“I have attended 4 of Ken’s courses in investigation and criminal

intelligence and I have never had a better informed and

enthusiastic instructor than Ken in 45 years in local, state and

federal law enforcement experience.”

Robert S. Gaiser, Lieutenant

Buckner Police Department

“Having attended (and hosted) a number of Ken’s classes, he is

consistently on top of the intelligence game, and often ahead

of the curve. He exudes professionalism.”

Detective Robert Holland

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office

“I have had the pleasure of attending two of the courses presented

by Ken Sanz. Ken teaches secrets of not only conducting

a professional intelligence mission, but how to keep it organized

when it gets too big. Most of these tricks were skills that

had taken years to develop through trial and error. If I had had

Ken’s courses early on in my career I would have had the shortcuts

to have been successful early on.”

Detective Sergeant Sean Barnwell

Branson Police Department

About Your Trainer

Ken Sanz began his law enforcement career in 1973 as an

officer with the Tampa, Florida, Police Department and later

became a detective

assigned to the Vice

Control Bureau and

the Organized Crime

Unit. It was then that

Ken began to focus on

criminal intelligence in

furtherance of an effort

to thwart the aggressive

emergence of organized

crime cartels,

gangs and various

other criminal networks

in the state. It

was during this latter

assignment that Ken

was appointed as a

consultant to a State of

Florida Subcommittee

tasked with drafting the

State’s “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt organization (RICO)

Statute.” In 1982, Ken began his service as a Special Agent

with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Until his retirement

in 2007, Ken was actively engaged in the investigation

of transnational crime syndicates operating in North and

South America, the Caribbean nations, Asia, and Western Europe.

As a result of his experience, Ken is an internationally

recognized expert in the analysis and investigation of domestic

and international criminal enterprises, gangs and extremist

organizations. Ken has served as a consultant on criminal

intelligence matters for many law enforcement agencies and

has held the position of Chairman of the Central Florida Organized

Crime Intelligence Group and President of the International

Association of Asian Crime Investigations. He is also a

member of the International Association of Law Enforcement

Intelligence Analysts and the Organized Crime Committee of

the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Having pursued

a dual major in Political Science and Criminal Justice at

the University of South Florida and now as a Certified Instructor

by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission,

Ken has instructed for many city, state and federal

law enforcement agencies, academies, colleges and universities

throughout North America, Europe and Asia. He has also

coordinated intelligence seminars for INTERPOL in Lyon,

France, and for the joint US/People’s Republic of China Organized

Crime Conferences on Asian Organized Crime held in

Beijing. Ken has also worked with the International Criminal

Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP) to develop

Criminal Intelligence Training Standards for the municipal and

national police services in Columbia, South America.
