Law Enforcement & Intelligence
LGI has been on the forefront of law enforcement and intelligence best practices and policy advancement. LGI is involved in many initiatives to support law enforcement operations, including developing training and technical assistance for delivery around the country, strategies and policies for nationwide adoption, and individual agency strategies and policies. Our projects have focused on intelligence and information sharing, law enforcement and public safety practices, and law enforcement and public safety technologies. We often work directly with intelligence, military, social services, academia, and private sector organizations to exchange best practices. We take great pride in the results we have delivered to support our dedicated clients—our nation’s greatest protectors.
We rely on the broad range of knowledge and expertise of its staff and subject matter experts to deliver actionable results for its clients. By working closely with law enforcement, intelligence, and security leaders and practitioners to ensure a detailed understanding of their practices and challenges, we can identify and develop best practices and opportunities for advancing law enforcement’s abilities. Special attention is paid to increasing law enforcement’s ability to be effective and efficient as they expand their tools and partnerships to protect their communities from crime and terrorism.
While traditional core law enforcement capabilities are a focus, opportunities for innovative strategies and approaches are also sought and developed to meet law enforcement’s challenge of doing more with less. Special attention is paid to increasing law enforcement’s ability to be effective and efficient as they expand their tools and partnerships to protect their communities from crime and terrorism.
LGI provides strategic support to the nation’s top law enforcement and security leadership on important policy and legislative issues, including combating firearms violence, preventing violent crime, promoting officer safety and wellness, conducting community/relational policing, maintaining access to digital evidence, performing technical and virtual operations, preventing terrorism and targeted violence, and managing immigration. Policy development is based on a broad understanding of the issues that can only be gained through decades of national leadership and analysis in these issues. We understand not only what will work, but how to develop policies that can be successfully implemented.
Training & Technical Assistance
Good training and technical assistance focuses in on a true need to increase knowledge and awareness, increase capacities, and effect lasting change. The format and design of our training challenges participants to be life-long learners by making a special connection. The information has to be relatable, memorable, and actionable to ensure it is retained by participants in their critical operational roles. Our law enforcement and intelligence training and technical assistance has focused on core policing practices, including building community partnerships and engagement, addressing domestic violence, preventing terrorism and targeted violence, conducting threat assessments, learning practical skills in intelligence collection and analysis, and tracking illicit financing.
LGI specializes in real-time monitoring, translation, interpretation, and transcription of court-authorized wiretap investigations. Our experienced staff members transcribe and translate recorded conversations into English and maintain the case records. Our staff also provides translations and interpretations of Title III intercepts to and from English and foreign languages and prepares transcriptions of these materials for all ongoing investigations.
Guide to Address Violent Crime
LGI worked with police chiefs and the Federal Government to develop the Violent Crime Reduction Operations Guide to outline actions and activities that are applicable to any agency and that have contributed to successful crime-fighting strategies throughout the country. This guide offers a unique “for the field, by the field” perspective that combines best practices and research to assist all law enforcement executives in assessing their overall capacity and answering the question, “Where do we go from here?” The guide offers ideas on how to approach community engagement, partnerships, technology, analytics and intelligence, training, tactics, and resources and sustainability. The guide has been praised by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Attorney General.
