A Proven Resource for Law Enforcement

“For law enforcement information sharing, the RISSNET system is tested, tried and trusted.”

Chief Robert Grandpre, Pierre, South Dakota, Police Department

“We have been an ROCIC member since 1987 and I don’t know what we would do without their valuable resources – training, equipment, criminal intelligence and analytical work.  They really bridge the gap for smaller agencies like ours.”

Valley, Alabama, Police Department

“RISS aids in the exchange of information between different states and regions and is a critical component of that success. I cannot stress the importance of MAGLOCLEN/RISS to law enforcement and to the individual beat cop who protects and serves his community.”

Brunswick Police Department, Frederick, Maryland

RISS ATIX

RISSIntel

The RISSIntel user interface provides for a real-time, online federated search of more than 50 RISS and partner intelligence databases, including state intelligence systems, fusion centers, and systems connected via the National Virtual Pointer System (NVPS). RISSIntel permits federated searching across many systems without requiring the RISSNET user to have a separate user account for each partner system. Millions of intelligence records are available via RISSIntel and between connected partner systems. Records include individuals, organizations and gangs, and associates, as well as locations, vehicles, weapons, and telephone numbers.

RISSafe

RISSafe is an essential component in helping to ensure that our officers remain safe. Investigative efforts, such as undercover operations, often create the potential for conflict between agencies or officers who are unknowingly working in close proximity to each other. In other cases, agencies or officers may be coordinating an event focusing on the same subject at the same time. In either case, agencies or officers may interfere with each other’s cases, causing investigative efforts to be disrupted or, worse, officers to be unintentionally hurt or killed. The use of an officer safety event deconfliction system provides for controlled and secure monitoring of these operations and the immediate notification of affected parties when conflicts arise.

RISSGang

The RISS National Gang Program (RISSGang) consists of the RISS National Gang Intelligence Database, the RISSGang Website, and information resources. The database provides law enforcement agencies with access to gang records, including targets, organizations, weapons, locations, and vehicles, as well as visual imagery of gang members, gang symbols, and gang graffiti. The RISSGang Website provides gang-specific news, documents, and publications organized into topical areas such as motorcycle gangs, drug gangs, street gangs, prison gangs, tattoos, hand signs, colors, and graffiti.

RISS ATIX

RISS ATIX provides law enforcement, public safety, and critical infrastructure personnel—representing such entities as public utilities, schools, fire departments, and the chemical industry—with access to homeland security, disaster, and terrorist threat information, as well as secure communication capabilities. Hundreds of thousands of public safety professionals can access RISS ATIX, and the number of participants continues to grow.
