LAUNCH OF THE FIRST AND ONLY MULTI-AGENCY LAW ENFORCEMENT DATABASE
Who: Sheriff Baca, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department; Chief Charlie Beck, Los Angeles Police Department; Sheriff Sandra Hutchins, Orange County Sheriff’s Department; Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley; Special Agent in Charge John Torres, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich; Secretary Matthew Cate, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation; Co-Director Connie Rice, Advancement Project in Los Angeles; and Chief Mike Bowman, Los Angeles School Police Department.
What: Sheriff Baca will unveil the Community-based Information System (CBIS). The first of its kind, this comprehensive database is designed to combine crime, demographics, social service referrals, school dynamics, and other relevant data. It will allow law enforcement agencies to share information throughout multiple jurisdictions. Unlike typical reactive law enforcement technological systems that are used to track criminals or analyze crime, the purpose of this system is to allow law enforcement agencies to better understand the socioeconomic dynamics that underlie troubled neighborhoods.
