*FBI launches regional data sharing system*

By Daniel Pulliam

The FBI is rolling out a program that allows federal law enforcement
agencies and state and local police forces to share information
throughout local regions of the country.

The Regional Data Exchange works through local law enforcement offices
and allows state, local and tribal law enforcement investigators access
to federal information and intelligence data relevant to investigations
within their jurisdictions. The FBI did not provide cost estimates for
the system, but said it is paid for by regional and local law
enforcement agencies.

The program was first launched in St. Louis as part of the FBI's
National Information Sharing System, and a similar program will be
established in Seattle later this summer. Plans for augmenting the
system include adding data from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Marshals
Service and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
