Video: The first Joint Regional Intelligence Center has opened in Los Angeles last month, with a goal of coordinating efforts among law enforcement agencies to prevent terrorist attacks.

Nor is JRIC a bastion of classified information. Although personnel have top secret clearance, the JRIC staff--about 30 people from local law enforcement, the FBI and Homeland Security--they are tasked with collecting data and sharing data and investigating potential threats in the 40,000 square mile region. News.com's Joris Evers interviews the head of technology for the JRIC. More regional centers are staffing up   in Reisterstown, Maryland; New York City; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
