Your Director Needs A Quick Assessment Before Her 9am Meeting –
Situation: You are a Criminal Intelligence Analyst working in the Avon and Somerset Police, located in Bristol UK.
You’ve been assigned to the Criminal Intelligence Branch (C.I.B) – with an operational focus on Organised Crime in Bristol, UK.
It’s 8:05am and you’ve just arrived in the office carrying a fresh coffee and toasted ham and cheese croissant.
But before you get to put the flaky-pastry to your mouth, the C.I.B Director needs to see you in her office…
…you take a quick swig of your coffee, grab your notebook and pen and head in.
“I need you to tell me what’s going on here”
She hands you a file containing a mix-mash of Police reporting, and tells you she needs a quick assessment before her meeting with the Commissioner at 9am.
This Criminal Group are up to something, and we need to know what it is –
I need you to read into the problem and provide me a quick summary.
