The quick guide to Clue for Intelligence

From the initial reception of fragmented data, through comprehensive evaluation and refinement, to intelligence analysis, Clue helps you identifies emerging trends, evaluate risks and support preventive measures.

The quick guide to Clue for Intelligence

Receiving your information

At the Receive phase, you’ll collect and capture raw information into your Clue system. Clue can receive information from a multitude of sources, including:

Source contributions: Information collected securely from sources. Manage and track sources using the Information and Source Registers.

Investigative discoveries: Information identified and added to Clue through your team’s investigative activities.

Intelligence reports: Information coming from third parties, for example, via secure reporting systems, database integrations, or email.

Watchlists: Clue can instantly notify you of new information based on pre-defined search terms, ensuring crucial information isn’t overlooked and the risk of false positives is reduced.

Assessing your information

At the Assess phase, information is evaluated to determine its value, integrity, and relation to other data in Clue.

Assessment Register: Assess the information received using a configurable Assessment Register.

Discovering insights: Insights and Search tools are used to uncover links between data and record relationships. Data and connections can be visualised with interactive charting tools for a clear picture.

To File, Share, or Task: At this point, you can decide whether to store intelligence for future reference; share intelligence with partners; or task it for further development.

Developing your intelligence

The Develop phase is when intelligence requires further refinement and development – it may often involve multiple team members collaborating on a complex development.

Assigning a team: Use Access Control to assign team members to your intelligence project.

Organise and track progress: Document and organise progress with Tasks and Investigator Notes. Continue to add new records and link to existing ones.

Specialised registers: Utilise the Investigation Register for structured Inputs (Material and Statement Register). The Events Register stores evidential data (ANPR, bank transactions).

Continue to develop: Use Search and Insights to identify new intelligence from gathered and Clue-wide data. The Decision Register records new or excluded enquiries.

Supervision and reporting: Manage your work with Workflow, Insights, and Reporting functions.

Presenting your intelligence

At the Present phase, information is evaluated for presentation to your organisation, partners, or relevant authorities.

Grade Intelligence: You can generate graded and sanitised intelligence reports in compliant formats such as the UK National Intelligence Model.

Disseminate intelligence: Distribute intelligence to your organisation, share intelligence externally, following protocols, or with other verified partners securely using Clue. Custom Reports: Create custom report templates for specific presentation purposes, such as hearings. Preventative Action: Intelligence may inform measures to mitigate threats from developing and the likelihood of future risks.

Our world-class investigation and intelligence management software centralises and links all information, proactively identifying links within your data. Detect threats, prevent recurrence, and uncover actionable intelligence to achieve successful outcomes.
