One of the major trends in law enforcement has been changing expectations regarding criminal intelligence practices among state, local, and tribal (SLT) law enforcement agencies. Enhancing intelligence efforts has emerged as a critical issue for the prevention of terrorist acts as well as for addressing criminal threats.

In this issue, the editorial staff recognizes April as stress awareness month. The criminal justice community is challenged with keeping its most critical resource safe, the men and women that serve. The 2012 Stress in America survey found that stress is slightly declining but continues to impact young adults.
Law enforcement officers recognize that stress is part of the profession and working conditions. In the past, police culture did not recognize stress as a problem affecting their officers. However, there is now plenty of evidence and research showing that unmanaged stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
State and local governments across the country are facing reduced budgets. Law enforcement agencies and correctional entities are experiencing residual effects through unprecedented staff reductions and declining resources. These reductions affect community services, including public safety, and impact the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, community expectations do not decline with the economy. Agencies are challenged to find new and creative ways do more with less. One way is to share resources and drive strategic crime control together.
