Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center Network Connection to the RISS Secure Cloud (RISSNET)

The Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center joined the group of partner-agency system connections to RISSNET and is sharing its statewide criminal intelligence database. Today, there are more than 50 state and regional partner-agency systems connected to RISSNET via the RISS Criminal Intelligence Database (RISSIntel), with more connections pending. This connectivity is real-time, seamless, and highly beneficial to officers and analysts who are involved in developing investigative case information and analysis, since it provides easy and quick access to millions of data records. RISSIntel and partner intelligence systems comply with 28 Code of Federal Regulations Part 23. By leveraging RISSNET and RISSIntel, partner law enforcement agencies can securely share intelligence data among themselves and across jurisdictional boundaries, while safeguarding privacy and civil liberties.
