The HIDTA method of providing intelligence support uses a four-phase cycle. It starts with the identification of the nature, roles, and procedures of primary targets and continues with gathering probable cause for arrest and search warrants; recommending actions for arrests, searches, and interrogations; and recommending actions and disseminating data from seized documents. Each phase involves many steps, procedures, and records. This system can quickly make significant contributions to drug investigations and requires little training when military intelligence troops are used. Thus, this system is ideal for other law enforcement agencies that depend on temporary military personnel for intelligence support. These military intelligence concepts can work well for civilian intelligence analysts as well.
