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.

We are proud to announce the launch of our newsletter, ILETSBEI News to the criminal justice community. The newsletter is guided by the mission, vision and core values of the ILETSB Executive Institute and its activities.
Each monthly newsletter will highlight a topic relevant to the criminal justice field. In this issue, the editorial staff recognizes March as Womens History Month with a series of articles. A little known fact is the first female police officer in Illinois and possibly the United States was Marie Owens of the Chicago Police Department. Her story was basically erased from history until former DEA Agent Rick Barrett stumbled upon her name while researching the history of Chicago law enforcement.
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.
