I often get asked for scenario and training materials –
So I thought I’d put together the following Intelligence Training Scenario.
You are a criminal Intelligence Analyst recently recruited to the Ontario Police Force in Canada.
You’ve been assigned to the State Intelligence Branch – with an operational focus on Organised Crime in Toronto.
After your first day at work yesterday, you were pleasantly surprised to have the computer network access you need, and access to all your systems.
Now to get down to business.
Your new boss, an Inspector within the Ontario Police informs you that the District Court is seeking to extradite a prisoner from a Quebec Prison to be sentenced for an assault charge.
He believes there may also be links to organised crime, but doesn’t have the full picture.
He provides you with the file on Hugo DeSilva and asks you to prepare a brief –
The inspector tells you to start by reviewing the documents included in the file.
He informs you that the articles in the brief are open-source news articles (in no particular order) and three Ontario Police Intelligence Reports for context also.
The inspector requests an initial brief by the end of the day –
Hugo Kenneth DeSilva – Intelligence Brief
Review the articles and Police Intelligence reports provided in the brief and using the comments section below, provide an initial assessment to inform the inspector what is going on?
- This is a made-up scenario using the articles as training material only.
- Just use what you’ve been given – there’s plenty to go off.
- Feel free to ask questions, put in collection requests and post images including link diagrams, timelines etc.
- The articles are in no particular order.
- Let me know if you have any issues – post in the comments or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Task – Review the articles and Police Intelligence reports provided in the brief and using the comments section below, provide an initial assessment to inform the inspector what’s going on.
