e-Guardian is the name of an Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) system, launched in January 2009, to share tips about possible terror threats with local police agencies. The program aims to get law enforcement at all levels sharing data quickly about suspicious activity and people.
e-Guardian, which is currently being piloted by several agencies, will start being rolled out in phases throughout the United States by the end of 2009 The system will enable near real-time sharing and tracking of terror information and suspicious activities with local, state, tribal, and federal agencies. The e-Guardian system is a spin-off of a similar but classified tool called Guardian that has been used inside the FBI, and shared with vetted partners since 2005.
Any law enforcement officer with an Internet connection and an account on the system can access e-Guardian.
