Reporters Look at Mexican Emergency Command CenterAug 02, 2012
By Agustin de Gracia
A section of a Mexican Federal Police bunker is home to a command center equipped with cutting-edge technology and filled with screens that constantly provide a stream of information, but the facility has never been used.
Access to the Security Secretariat's command center in Mexico City is restricted, but reporters were given a look inside.
The command center, which has a large oval table surrounded by screens providing feeds from still and video cameras, police files, maps, diagrams and a database containing the voice patterns of suspected criminals, is at the heart of the facility.
During a tour that lasted more than two hours, Deputy Public Safety Secretary for Information Technology Francisco Niembro and other officials led six reporters, who were not allowed to use cameras, through the passageways of the intelligence center, which is manned 24 hours a day by 1,800 specialists who work to prevent crime.
