This book examines the need to bridge strategic intelligence and community collaboration. It explores intelligence collection, analysis, and operations as they relate to conflicts that can be solved through community collaboration. Its argument sits at the nexus of intelligence collection, operations and academic research, supporting the use of analytical frameworks, process theories, critical thinking, and pragmatic approaches in intelligence data analysis to provide a seamless end-product for effective decision making by policy makers, business, and military strategists. The book insists that public opinion matters, in the sense that leaders must shape it using collected intelligence and not wait for things to just happen. For any intelligence-community collaboration to succeed, intelligence agencies must succeed in framing and setting public opinion. The book also sheds light on competitive intelligence, arguing that turbulent times and threatening environments necessitate that corporate organizations engage in competitive intelligence the same way security organizations and agencies constantly shift and change paradigms. They must be innovative, create new labor practices, and use self-motivating management approaches and dynamic imaginative models to invent new strategic intelligence tactics and resolutions for optimal performance and productivity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Maiwa'azi Dandaura-Samu's book, Strategic Intelligence-Community Security Partnerships: Molding Partnerships in Conflict-Prone Regions, serves a comprehensive and strategic approach to alliance building between security personnel and community leadership, with the shared goal of maintaining cooperative and communicative relationship for regional stability. This book offers a practical and feasible approach to alliance building in conflict prone regions and makes clear the incentives necessary to fortify community partnerships while also addressing the many complications that stymie development and destabilize regional security. -- Jason J. Campbell, Nova Southeastern University
This book is a must read and an eye opener. Its timing apt given the rampaging insecurity and ravenous blood-letting that has become a common feature in Nigeria, especially coupled with the dismal response to it by the security agencies. The security challenges seem to have overwhelmed the security intelligence network in place. The emphasis of the book is a motivational, reward-based intelligence agency-community collaborative efforts. The book provides great insight from perspectives which had hitherto been ignored in intelligence- security circles in the course of information,intelligence gathering and sharing. -- Francis M. Kwede, University of Jos
Dandaura has meticulously intertwined all disciplines to holistically solve a global menace. This multi-disciplinary approach adopted for tackling insecurity, with Boko Haram as a case study, blends theory and field practice approaches to address a very difficult phenomenon. This book is a must read for students of security and peace and conflict studies, and scholars and practitioners working in war torn communities. -- Zubairu Kwambo Dagona, University of Jos
Maiwa'azi Dandaura-Samu presents another dimension to addressing security challenges and crime through partnerships between community members and the security agencies. Using the Boko Haram case, he highlights how the failure of intelligence led to the avoidable bitter experiences of Nigeria. The book develops a security strategy recommended for the establishment of a mechanism (Citizens Police Project) based on a combination of intelligence gathering, academic research, and analytical frameworks. Readers will appreciate the understanding of creative thinking in the complex era of contemporary security challenges. -- Jon Temlong, National Defence College
