Respond to this police detective, corporal, sergeant or lieutenant oral board question:
How would YOU describe your knowledge and experience in Intelligence-led policing?"
"I've read everything about the topic, especially the FBI's treatment on ILP in fusion centers and its application to terrorist investigations.
