Private Investigation News: Community Based Information System

"The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and partnering agencies unveiled a nationwide, first of its kind database called Community Based Information System (CBIS) today at Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. This database is designed to combine crime, demographics, social service referrals, school dynamics and other relevant data. It is the ultimate information led policing system empowering law enforcement in making decisions and improving services. Sheriff Lee Baca stated, “This system has the capability to empower police agencies to effectively identify and assess problem areas, without regard to jurisdictional boundaries, just like crime.”

During hard economic times when departments are minimizing services, this tool will allow law enforcement partners to continue the ongoing fight to provide public safety by bridging the gaps between information sharing. “The CBIS provides real time intelligence between local, state and federal agencies that will allow us to combat crime together,” said John A. Torres, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Los Angeles Field Division. “If this database can save one life, and I know it will, ATF will continue its collaboration with this project to ensure open lines of intelligence is being shared with all levels of law enforcement.”
