Scheduled for completion in July, the project is part of a nationwide FBI program aimed at upgrading police technology and improving communication among all levels of law enforcement.

HACKENSACK, N.J. - From the outside, the modest single-family house in Hillsdale, N.J., looks unremarkable. Yet the house is testimony to a quiet but rapidly unfolding change in New Jersey's suburbs. The house, with its peeling paint and mismatched secondhand furniture, is home to 19 immigrants: nine children and 10 adults - one of whom is pregnant with a baby due. The immigrants, an extended family from Costa Rica living in the United States illegally, are rarely home at the same time.

Philip Roth is doing it again -- invoking the vocabulary and sexual explicitness that scandalized readers in his "Portnoy's Complaint" and elsewhere. He does it skillfully. But it's still a shock to many readers to see the words, predominantly of four letters, so freely in print. Whether one takes that usage to be a dramatic device or a naughty indulgence, to be distracted by it would be to miss the satisfactions of a brilliantly accomplished book, coming from a premier American novelist: "The Dying Animal" (Houghton Mifflin, 156 pages, $23)
