Intelligence Analyst
One of the most integral components of the DEA is the gathering of intelligence. This is a career which requires a special person with an anaylitical mind. This is the person who can methodically put puzzle pieces together and find the right sequence of events to make a clear picture. An Analyst often has the opportunity to travel to foreign countries to assist Special Agents in debriefing someone with information which might enhance an investigation. The information compiled by Intelligence Analysts is critical and is accessed and used by Federal, State, and local law enforcement, the White House, the Congress and the media. Without intelligence there is no fight against illegal drugs.
