Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Centers

RISSRISS supports efforts against organized and violent crime, gang activity, drug activity, terrorism, human trafficking, identity theft, and other regional priorities, while promoting officer safety.
 

 

RISS is composed of six regional centers and the RISS Technology Support Center.  RISS works regionally and nationwide to respond to the unique crime problems of each region while strengthening the country’s information sharing environment.  RISS supports efforts against organized and violent crime, gang activity, drug activity, terrorism, human trafficking, identity theft, and other regional priorities.  RISS is used and trusted by hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers and criminal justice professionals.  RISS supports thousands of local, state, federal, and tribal law enforcement and public safety agencies in every state.

 

For more than 40 years, RISS has demonstrated its value and benefit to the criminal justice and law enforcement community.  RISS provides critical investigative and analytical services, secure access to intelligence systems and investigative data from all levels of government, technology- and field-based solutions, and essential officer safety resources.

 

RISS operates the RISS Secure Cloud (RISSNET), which is a sensitive but unclassified (SBU) system that connects disparate systems, provides bidirectional sharing, and offers a single simultaneous search of connected systems.  Hundreds of resources (most owned by RISS partners) rely on the RISSNET infrastructure to share millions of records among and between law enforcement from all levels.  Currently, 84 systems are connected or pending connection to RISSNET.  More than 37 million records are available through these and other RISSNET resources.

 

RISS has developed a number of resources accessible via RISSNET that are critical to the law enforcement community’s mission, including the following:
