Regional Information Sharing Systems

To enhance the ability of the state and local criminal justice agencies to identify, target, and remove criminal conspiracies and activities that span jurisdictional boundaries.

The first objective of the Regional Information Sharing Systems Program (RISS) is to encourage and facilitate the rapid
exchange and sharing of information among federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies pertaining to known or suspected terrorist, or criminal activity.

The second objective is to enhance coordination and communication among agencies that are in pursuit of criminal conspiracies determined to be interjurisdictional in nature.

In addition, the RISS Program may provide technical and financial resources to member agencies, such as specialized equipment, training, and investigative funds, to augment existing multijurisdictional enforcement resources and operations.
