The Post's story included several other examples of current information-sharing systems which have been set up by law enforcement agencies around the country in an attempt to link together bits of information on criminal and terrorist-related activity into a coherent picture which could help agencies create safer communities, officials have said.Those systems include National Data Exchange System (N-Dex), Coplink, and LInx. According to the Navy's website, LInx is "built with open standards and leverages the existing technology to integrate diverse sytems.
