The National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan directed that standards for intelligence analysts be developed by IALEIA. IALEIA, at the direction of the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, through the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) Intelligence Working Group (GIWG), accomplished this and published a booklet entitled Law Enforcement Analytic Standards (IALEIA, 2004). The booklet set forth standards for analyst training. As outlined in this pamphlet, IALEIA members wishing to enter the Professional Certification Process (PCP,) must first successfully complete a 40 hour, basic intelligence course.
