The existence of police intelligence and its unique but all too often marginalized capacity for uncovering and destroying the prime movers of an insurgency is, in my opinion, something which must be re-examined and enabled in all counterinsurgencies. It is by no means a panacea for civil strife but as an integral component of a combined counterinsurgency strategy, it provides a weapon which is more feared by insurgents than any number of missiles, armored vehicles or boots on the ground.
Knowing who they are and where they may be found renders the insurgent visible and touchable. This is the natural role of police intelligence as this work is intended to demonstrate. It is my hope that this work will lead to additional discussion and thought on the integration and application of police intelligence to counterinsurgency.
