It is with great sadness we announce the death of IALEIA member Jesús García -Velázquez, who passed away on March 27, 2014. Jesús was an IALEIA member since 2000 and one of the four original IALEIA members from Mexico. Jesús was the Founding President of IALEIA Chapter Mexico from 2001 to 2005 and its Treasurer from 2005 until his death. In 2009, Jesús received the IALEIA Award for outstanding contributions as intelligence analyst to the achievement of law enforcement objectives. He won the award for his research and analysis on fraudulent documents, including birth certificates and passports, which led to the arrest of the gang responsible. His analysis included numerous telephone number link charts, link charts on written messages, and links to prison facilities.Jesús' trajectory in law enforcement and intelligence included the Mexican Center for Investigations and National Security, Mexican Internal Revenue Service (Internal Affairs, as well as Financial Intelligence Unit), Mexico City Police Department, Mexican Federal Police, and finally the Mexican Social Attorney's Office of Assistance for the Victims of Crime, where he continued working until just recently. Jesús is
survived by his wife, his daughter, and two sons. We will miss Jesús.
The below link will take you to the CICC spotlight for spring 2014. As you will see, in addition to a high-level overview of the March meeting, the spotlight also provides useful information on human trafficking, crime analysis, and an update on the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Intelligence/Investigations Functional Guidance and Field Operations Guide (as you may recall, the CICC was involved in efforts to finalize and release the NIMS document).
In addition to the attached spotlight, below are a few high-level bullet points on current activities of the CICC.
- Director Vernon Keenan has been appointed as the new Chair of the CICC, replacing Mr. Bart R. Johnson who recently retired from IACP. Director Keenan represents the Association of State Criminal Investigative Agencies (ASCIA) on the CICC and also serves on the IACP’s Investigation Operations Committee and the Dangerous Drugs and Narcotics Committee.
- Top priorities of the CICC in 2014 include:
- Developing minimum standards for advanced-level analytic training courses.
- Creating an analyst professional development road map that incorporates the basic, intermediate, and advanced analytic training standards.
- Developing a checklist for law enforcement agency executives to use as they assess agency operations, focusing on potential privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties (P/CRCL) issues.
- Outreach of new products and resources, includingthe National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan, Version 2.0; A Call to Action: Enhancing Officer Safety Through the Use of Event Deconfliction Systems; and the Minimum Standards for Intermediate-Level Analytic Training Courses.
- All CICC products and resources are available via the Global Information Sharing Toolkit: www.it.ojp.gov/gist.
Thank you for your feedback on the intermediate training standards for analysts during the past year.
They have now been published, and are available on our website: Resources | Minimum Standards. /sd
