Published 9 August 2006

Intelligence is important, and this is why Memex is providing an interoperable intelligence management system to the JRIC, a multi-agency terrorism and crime fighting unit

Information is power. Los Angeles, California—based Memex is providing the intelligence management system to support the Los Angeles Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC). The JRIC was created to fight terrorism and other criminal activities, and it is a multi-agency effort involving agents from the FBI, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), and DHS. The initiative will cover seven counties with a total population in excess of eighteen million and a geographic area of about 42,000 square miles. The Memex software aids in the management and sharing of intelligence information collected among the various law enforcement agencies. It is designed to allow JRIC officials to gather, collate, track, analyze, and disseminate intelligence information, including counterterrorism tips and leads, in real time. The software enables law enforcement agents to search for information across different databases simultaneously.
