ATF Seeks Mega Database to Consolidate Personal Information About Suspects

The ATF is hoping to acquire a mega database that would allow agents to quickly draw connections between suspects’ names, phone numbers, social security numbers and utility bills, the Huffington Post reports.

As it is, agents must analyze data largely by hand because the information is stored in separate locations, consuming time that could be spent investigating the suspects.

ATF is seeking proposals for “a massive online data repository system,” Huffington Post reported.

The idea is to drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to track down data on suspects.
