Los Angeles police are increasingly relying on technology that not only tells patrol officers where crime is most likely to occur but also identifies and keeps track of ex-cons and other bad guys they believe are most likely to commit them.

The program - part data collection, part lightning-fast computer platform, part street-level intelligence-gathering - is expanding in Los Angeles with the help of a recent federal infusion of $400,000 and has drawn interest from departments across North America.
