Application

This unit describes the skills required to complete planning for police intelligence projects, including establishing project scope and managing the planning process. The planning process includes the assessment of risk of non-completion of the project, or outcomes not being achieved.

This unit applies to those working as intelligence practitioners within the intelligence process in a policing environment.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to, particularly those related to planning processes, approvals, and resource management.

Those undertaking this unit would demonstrate the ability to prioritise and evaluate information for planning purposes. They would be required to apply critical thinking and analytical skills to meet responsibilities and communicate plans to other staff. They would be expected to work both autonomously and within teams as required. They will perform complex tasks and demonstrate ethical and professional policing qualities, displaying adaptability across a broad range of contexts.
