RISS Supports Nationwide Initiatives and Partnerships

RISS supports numerous federal and nationwide initiatives that help enhance and expand efficient and effective information sharing among the criminal justice community. In the current fiscal environment of reduced resources at all levels of government, the ability to share information remains one of the most important factors that enable communities to address their most pressing criminal justice problems in effective ways.

RISS is a key player in federal information sharing initiatives that contribute to significant cost and time savings through enhanced criminal justice information sharing, both horizontally and vertically, in ways that further strengthen public and officer safety and federal, state, local, and tribal agency and staff relationships across the nation.
