Hands-on tips for Palestinian Police officers on Information-led Policing

Valuable information is crucial for effective law enforcement. Police work rely heavily on Information Led-Policing (ILP) to collect and analyse data and ultimately render justice.

This week, EUPOL COPPS Information Led Policing (ILP) advisors delivered a third and final session of a three-part series of training to the Department of Information of the Palestinian Civil Police.   

The six Palestinian police officers joining the training worked on the review of the information cycle, the different types of criminal analysis and some case study.  Previous sessions of this series included training on investigative gaps, how to work with investigators to narrow or fill those gaps, report writing, and a presentation from the Department of Information (DoI) analysts on their work on an ongoing robbery investigation. 

The sessions were interactive, with a free and open exchange of information and experiences between the ILP advisors and the DoI analysts, to learn from one another about common challenges and experiences of policing.

“During these sessions, we emphasised that a collaborative approach, combined with information sharing, police accountability coupled with intelligence operations are key elements in solving cases,” said one of the Mission’s Intelligence Led Policing advisers who delivered the trainings, together with his Cyber Crime Expert colleague.
