Definition Edit

A criminal intelligence file

consists of stored information on the activities and associations of:
A. Individuals who:
1. Are suspected of being involved in the actual or attempted planning, organizing, financing, or commission of criminal acts; or
2. Are suspected of being involved in criminal activities with known or suspected crime figures.
B. Organizations, businesses, and groups that:
1. Are suspected of being involved in the actual or attempted planning, organizing, financing, or commission of criminal acts; or
2. Are suspected of being operated, controlled, financed, or infiltrated by known or suspected crime figures for use in an illegal manner.[1]

Overview Edit

Only information with a criminal predicate and which meets the agency's criteria for file input should be stored in the criminal intelligence file. Specifically excluded material includes:

A. Information on an individual or group merely on the basis that such individual or group supports unpopular causes.
B. Information on an individual or group merely on the basis of ethnic background.
C. Information on any individual or group merely on the basis of religious or political affiliations.
D. Information on an individual or group merely on the basis of non-criminal personal habits.
E. Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI), should be excluded from an intelligence file. This is because CORI may be subject to specific audit and dissemination restrictions which are designed to protect an individual's right to privacy and to ensure accuracy.
F. Also excluded are associations with individuals that are not of a criminal nature.[2]
