​​McALLEN – An intelligence center that will house federal, state and local law enforcement officials is underway.

It will allow law enforcement to connect the dots between crimes committed across the region and the rest of the state.​

The former McAllen Police station at 1501 Pecan Blvd.​ will become home to the new Texas Transnational Intelligence Center (TTIC).

The $2.4 million project is where information will be obtained and shared with multiple agencies as it happens.

The center is a result of the House Bill 11—passed two years ago—that appropriated the money​ to the center.

The new facility, which can house up to 120 officers at a time, is scheduled to open in August 2017.
