28 CFR Part 23— online
Criminal intelligence plays a vital role in the safety and security of our country. 28 CFR Part 23 was issued in 1980 to ensure the privacy and constitutional rights of individuals during the collection and exchange of criminal intelligence information, and it has since been an important part of the intelligence landscape.
To facilitate greater understanding of 28 CFR Part 23, the Bureau of Justice Assistance has developed the Criminal Intelligence Systems Operating Policies (28 CFR Part 23) online training. This training is designed to help state and local law enforcement understand the guidelines that govern the development and implementation of policies and systems that facilitate intelligence sharing.
