In this episode, David Jimenez shares how he utilized his military intelligence training in his civilian intelligence career -- what translated over well, what he needed to improve on, and how it gave him a unique perspective on how to approach investigations. David gives insight on different tools he used over his career as well as explains HIDTA's role in the law enforcement and intelligence world.
