Delaware State Police RISSafe Watch Center

One example of how Delaware law enforcement benefits from RISS services is RISSafe. A top priority among Delaware law enforcement leaders is safeguarding law enforcement officers while maintaining the integrity of agency investigations. RISSafe prevents blue-on-blue incidents when officers from multiple agencies are unknowingly investigating the same individual or organization at the same time. Working closely with MAGLOCLEN, the Delaware State Police deployed RISSafe to all law enforcement agencies in the state. It is impossible to put a cost to the number of officers whom RISSafe will prevent from harm in Delaware and beyond.
