    This dissertation will investigate the status of community intelligence within te National Intelligence Model (NIM) in order to explore the interrelationship between intelligence-led policing being adopted throughout the United Kingdom, together with the drive to improve the relationship between the police and the public. The aim of this work has been to research how intelligence is being defined within NIM, how community intelligence is both perceived by practitioners, and to draw conclusions from the tensions between these two competing constructs. The study included focused interviews with 23 practitioners working within analysis and intelligence thoughout the UK police service. This was combined with open-ended interviews with academics and persons working to implement NIM, and the use of secondary data to ensure reliability and validity. The results show that although there is a written statement within the NIM manual to focus on community issues within a NIM structure, this not how it is working in practice.
