Annotation: This report describes the Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Program, provides some historical background, and presents information on service delivery and program and project administration.
Abstract: The RISS Program, which operates in all 50 States, enhances the ability of local, State, and Federal criminal justice agencies to combat multijurisdictional crimes, criminals, and criminal activities. Operational support services include criminal information sharing and exchange, intelligence and case analysis, telecommunications, purchase of information and evidence, specialized investigative equipment, technical assistance, and training to support their members' response to multijurisdictional crimes. Project directors anticipate marked changes in project information sharing systems and in the manner in which projects deliver their services. They make recommendations about information sharing, intelligence analysis services, and optional services which include training, investigative equipment pools, technical assistance, and topical information sharing publications. Project directors identify a wide range of potential enhancements to ongoing operations in the areas of project oversight, membership, member participation, funding, and leadership.
