University sponsors conference of leading intelligence professionals

Representatives from Leicester presented at national intelligence event and established research and recruitment links

A University of Leicester delegation attended and were a sponsor of the National Intelligence Conference, which was organised by the National Police Chiefs Council and the College of Policing. This annual conference sees the national leads within the intelligence world speak on their work and offers the opportunity for intelligence professionals to learn from high profile cases. This was particularly the case this year, as the three days were arranged around the practical application of intelligence.

Dr David Strachan-Morris, Lecturer in Intelligence and Security in the Department of Politics and International Relations presented, with key stakeholders, his RADAR project, which seeks to improve some of the practices in policing intelligence. The RADAR project has been subject to a pilot, and Dr Strachan-Morris is currently performing an academic evaluation of the pilot.

Attending with him from the academic side were Dr Robert Dover, a new Senior Lecturer in Intelligence and International Security in the Department who is developing continuing professional development programmes in intelligence and international security to generate new business and research leads for the University. Clare Hudson, Tristram Hughes and Jonathan Sheen also attended from RED, generating many new leads for colleagues across campus as well as generating prospective practitioner entrants to the Department of Politics and International Relation's accomplished MA/Postgraduate Diploma in Intelligence and Security via Distance Learning. This programme aims to equip students with an understanding of key concepts and debates in relation to intelligence and security, based upon world-leading research and the practical experience in the field of intelligence of the members of the Department.
