The Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) program was formed as a partnership for information exchange between the federal government and state and local law enforcement. The six regional projects provide member law enforcement agencies in all 50 states with a broad range of intelligence and investigative support services. Recently, the existing RISS databases were redesigned to allow for connectivity among projects and the capability of a nationwide search of over 450,000 suspects. This relational database of intelligence information, along with a photographic imaging system, an operational `critical event' database, and GIS mapping are integrated components of RISSNET. The Geographical-Regional Information Sharing System (G-RISS) application is being prototypes by Graphic Data Systems Corporation at one RISS site, the Western States Information Network in Sacramento, California. G-RISS is a tool that will combine information from various law enforcement resources, map criminal activities to detect trends and assist agencies by being proactive to combat these activities.
