RISS recognized the importance of ensuring the safety of law enforcement officers and, in an effort to further enhance officer safety, developed the RISS Officer Safety Event Deconfliction System (RISSafe™). Thousands of agencies and officers use RISSafe every day. Since its inception, more than 2,300,000 operations have been entered into RISSafe, resulting in more than 511,000 identified conflicts. Without the identification of these conflicts, officers may have interfered with another agency’s or officer’s investigation, links between cases may have been lost, or officers or citizens may have been unintentionally hurt or killed. RISSafe is accessible and monitored on a 24/7/365 basis and available at no cost to all law enforcement agencies, regardless of RISS membership.
The RISSafe Watch Center staff are responsible for assisting officers, entering and monitoring events, responding to conflicts, and notifying affected parties. Currently, 29 RISSafe Watch Centers are operational, 23 of which are operated by organizations other than RISS.
