This paper is a comparative study of the Police Intelligence Organizations of Iran and Turkey. It is an applied study that utilized a qualitative approach and content analysis method. The library research section considered documents from the last ten years of the police intelligence organizations of both countries. Participants in the field section included deputy heads and heads of departments knowledgeable about the subject in Iran’s Police Intelligence Organization, Iran’s Interpol, Iran’s Anti-Narcotics Police, and Iranian liaison officers in Turkey. The comparison of documents from the two organizations was targeted and based on structure, content, and context using a three-pronged model. The data analysis method was a content analysis of documents and interviews. The results show that the police intelligence organizations of Iran and Turkey share commonalities in their hierarchy of authority, actions, and goals. However, differences can be observed in their formality, specialization, division of work, complexity, concentration, professionalism, technology use, environment, strategy, organizational culture, growth, and maturity. The findings also suggest that by recognizing and addressing its weaknesses - primarily related to a shortage of manpower and technology - and by reinforcing its spirit of belief, Iran's police intelligence organization can achieve significant success.
