When in the private workplace do we have a “reasonable expectation of privacy?” If management’s interest is to make sure its employees are productive, can management monitor computers, workstations, phones, etc. Why or why not?

Propose appropriate human reconnaissance methods for collecting the necessary intelligence.

For Part I of the final project, you will prepare a reconnaissance request for supervisor approval that includes a plan of action based on an assessment of the existing information. (You may want to draw on the analysis of the information in the intelligence report you created earlier in the course, using the five steps of the intelligence cycle to help inform your request.) The reconnaissance request should clearly identify the target and determine the appropriate surveillance and reconnaissance methods to employ.

You will submit your human reconnaissance report. Propose appropriate human reconnaissance methods for collecting the necessary intelligence. What human reconnaissance method(s) would be most appropriate? Where and how would the reconnaissance occur? What is the timeframe for the reconnaissance activity? Would the reconnaissance you propose be done overtly (openly; for example, through observing public behavior), covertly (in secret; for example, by using undercover agents or confidential informants), or by using a combination of methods? What resources (financial, equipment, facilities, and manpower) would be needed for the surveillance activities you propose? 

1. Propose appropriate human reconnaissance methods for collecting the necessary intelligence. 

2. What human reconnaissance method(s) would be most appropriate? 

3. Where and how would the reconnaissance occur? 

4. What is the timeframe for the reconnaissance activity? 

5. Would the reconnaissance you propose be done overtly (openly; for example, through observing public behavior), covertly (in secret; for example, by using undercover agents or confidential informants), or by using a combination of methods? 

6. What resources (financial, equipment, facilities, and manpower) would be needed for the surveillance activities you propose? 

7. Be sure to justify why this allocation of resources would be appropriate given intelligence objectives and the nature and imminence of the threat. 

When creating the reconnaissance plan, there are items to consider before selecting the appropriate reconnaissance method to employ:

  •  Budget  
  •       Time (officer hours) 
  •  Resources required 
  •          o Number of officers 
  •          o Support equipment 
  •     If the reconnaissance method is successful, what will be the impact of the      information gained? (You do not want to spend more money getting the information than the information is worth.)  
  •     Legalities  

When creating a reconnaissance plan, you need to be as detailed as possible. Eventually, the reconnaissance plan will be approved by legal counsel and your supervisor. In order to protect you from legal prosecution, every reconnaissance employment needs to be explained in great detail, addressing all facts and considerations (i.e., who, what, when, where, why, and how). 

Use the following resource to support this milestone: CJ 468 Sample of a Reconnaissance Plan  

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed: 

III. Human Reconnaissance: Propose appropriate human reconnaissance methods for collecting the necessary intelligence. Remember, even if human reconnaissance surveillance methods are not the ones you would recommend as a first choice, you should still address the following elements, in case your preferred option turns out not to be feasible for budgetary or political reasons. Specifically, you should address: 

  • A. What human reconnaissance method(s) would be most appropriate? Where and how would the reconnaissance occur? What is the timeframe for the reconnaissance activity? Support your choice of methods, including location and timeframe, using information from the referring agency’s intelligence report. 
  • B. Would the reconnaissance you propose above be done overtly (openly; for example, through observing public behavior), covertly (in secret; for example, by using undercover agents or confidential informants), or using a combination of methods? Support your choice using information from the referring agency’s intelligence report. 
  • C. What resources (financial, equipment, facilities, and manpower) would be needed for the reconnaissance activities you propose? (Estimates are fine for the purposes of this project.) Be sure to justify why this allocation of resources would be appropriate given intelligence objectives and the nature and imminence of the threat. 

2–3 pages in length, 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, and follow APA formatting. It must also contain at least three sources, cited in APA format.
