Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Membership

The Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Program provides secure information and intelligence sharing capabilities, critical investigative support services, and officer safety event deconfliction. RISS supports all crimes, including violent crimes. Through RISS’s Secure Cloud (RISSNET), authorized users can access numerous resources, including the RISS Criminal Intelligence Database (RISSIntel) and the 35 partner-agency intelligence databases connected via RISSIntel. Through RISSIntel, users can query multiple databases simultaneously to obtain information on violent suspects and connect with officers across jurisdictions to share information. Other resources available that aid in violence reduction efforts include the RISSGang Program, RISSLeads Investigative Website, RISS Property and Recovery Tracking System (RISSProp), and the Project Safe Neighborhoods Mapping and Analysis Program (PSN MAP). RISS also provides investigative support services in the areas of analytical support, audiovisual enhancement, digital forensics, surveillance and specialized equipment loans, research assistance, publications, and training. Each of these areas has been used and is available to support law enforcement efforts to investigate, respond to, apprehend, and prosecute violent offenders. RISS provides officer safety resources, including the RISS Officer Safety Event Deconfliction System (RISSafe), which maintains data on planned law enforcement investigative events—such as raids, controlled buys, surveillances, and undercover operations—and identifies and alerts agencies or officers of potential conflicts. RISSafe has helped safeguard officers and citizens across the country. Approximately 30 percent of events entered into RISSafe result in an identified conflict. RISS is a proven resource for law enforcement and provides officers services that aid them from the beginning of an investigation to the ultimate prosecution and conviction of criminals.
