Office of Intelligence and Analysis (OIA)
The Office of Intelligence and Analysis (OIA) serves as a critical support element for the patrol divisions, which serve as the front-line of the APD and seeks to increase the safety and security of our customers and personnel by increasing the department’s insight into ongoing threats and potential terrorist acts through the analysis and dissemination of intelligence information. The Office of Intelligence and Analysis is comprised of sworn detectives and non-sworn analytical personnel that enhance the security and safety of the Amtrak system, customers, and personnel through the real-time exchange of intelligence, investigative, and threat information across the country. The counter-terrorism analytical component support these operations through the review of classified federal briefings, as well as the preparation of analytical reports that provide analysis on threats, special events, and VIP movements.
The Criminal Intelligence component of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis provides timely and accurate tactical, strategic, administrative, and operational intelligence of analysis of crime data in support of the agency’s goals and customer oriented policing efforts. The crime analysts are responsible for monitoring criminal activity and communicating that information to the sworn personnel through analytical reports designed to enhance criminal suppression activities while also aiding the investigative process and apprehension of offenders. The analysts develop daily, monthly, quarterly, and ad hoc reports to the command staff specifically designed to aid in the intelligence led deployment efforts of the department.
