The InfraGard Members Alliance is a free national education and information sharing program created by and between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the private sector. In Los Angeles, Our objectives include the mitigating of local, state and national vulnerabilities which criminals and terrorists might attempt to exploit, providing increased protection against criminal activities found in our communities, businesses, and personal lives.

This includes different types of venues such as studios, theme parks, sports arenas, stadiums, convention centers, hotels, offices buildings, high-rise buildings, manufacturing centers, retail and commercial complexes.
There are two main components of our organization:
