The FBI is launching a system to share tips about possible terror threats with local police agencies just in time for the presidential inauguration.
The program aims to get more local police officers sharing data quickly about suspicious activity and people -- particularly in and around the nation's capital leading up the historic ceremony.
Ahead of next week's inauguration, officials say they are getting as many as 1,000 tips a day from the public.
Called e-Guardian, the information sharing program began New Year's Eve and is available to law enforcement agencies around the country.
