A special information-sharing initiative in Los Alamos will be featured at a gathering of law enforcement officials attending an Intergraph conference in Las Vegas, Nev., Monday through Thursday.
Los Alamos Police Chief Wayne Torpy will discuss with officials from across the country and around the world Los Alamos County’s participation in the Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) system. LInX is aimed at reinventing the means by which local, state and federal law enforcement agencies share criminal threat information.
“I think it’s really a good opportunity for our community to be able to highlight the fact that we have an advanced technology within our police department,” Torpy said Thursday. “I’m honored to be invited to feature one of our community’s capabilities at an international conference.”
Before 9/11, it was a difficult challenge for agencies to communicate across jurisdictional lines, Torpy said.
LInX is eliminating that challenge. NCIS, the Navy’s felony investigative, counterintelligence and security arm, designed LInX as a way for agencies across the nation to share information to reduce crime and prevent terrorism.
