The International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA) has selected Psychology of Intelligence Analysis, by Richards J. Heuer, Jr., as the winner of its award for "Most Significant Contribution to the Literature of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysis."

Mr. Heuer, a CIA retiree, completed this widely applauded book in 1999. He wrote it under a contract with the CIA’s Center for the Study of Intelligence (CSI). IALEIA’s Executive Director, Howard Atkin, in nominating Heuer’s book for this award last February, praised its "informative yet readable style [in] reviewing . . . natural thinking processes, . . . linking these to useful mental ‘thinking tools’ for analysts, and rounding off with an examination of bias and its potential impact upon analytical thought processes."

In seconding the nomination, another recognized authority in law enforcement intelligence, author-lecturer-educator Marilyn B. Peterson, observed that although Mr. Heuer was "writing from an international point of view," she saw in his work "a lot of applicability for law enforcement intelligence in the concepts and methodologies he espouses. In fact," she added, "I immediately began blending some of his lessons into the basic intelligence analysis course that I was teaching in New Jersey and for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and I made sure that anyone who would listen would learn about this marvelous book."

Originally recruited in 1951 by future DCI Richard Helms, Mr. Heuer worked for the CIA for about 45 years, first as a career officer and then as a post-retirement contractor. He served in both the operations and analytic directorates (DO and DI). While in the DI, he led a unit that did groundbreaking work on analytical methods. Dick Heuer has received several prestigious awards over the years for his innovative work. In addition to Psychology of Intelligence Analysis, he has written and published books and articles on other aspects of the intelligence discipline. He is currently working as a consultant for the Defense Personnel Security Research Center in Monterey, California. IALEIA Executive Director Atkin also nominated CSI for a separate award for its roles in introducing innovative analytical approaches, in providing "tactical/strategic analysis coverage to areas not previously served or served inadequately," and in achieving "outstanding editorial presentation."

Mr. Heuer’s book is available on CSI’s Internet Website.
