The SHTF Intelligence course prepares students for conducting intelligence collection and analysis operations post-SHTF for community security. We begin by exploring and analyzing the threats we’re likely to face during a SHTF scenario, and then we get into how we should configure our intelligence section. This is the ‘brain’ of community security. We work on understanding our SHTF mission and we conduct some threat analysis to identify what we should be preparing for. Then we build our intelligence team around the mission.

You’ll have the opportunity to do group or individual work where you’ll navigate the Intelligence Cycle and complete relevant intelligence products for your community. We discuss Intelligence collection and then we collect. Then we discuss Intelligence analysis and we then analyze incoming information in order to produce intelligence. Training students to become the ‘intelligence officer’ during any SHTF scenario.
