Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $4,912,463)

The Regional Information Sharing System (RISS) Program offers a variety of services and support to law enforcement agencies including secure information sharing and communications system for regional information sharing between Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement agencies, critical analytical and investigative support services, and event deconfliction to enhance officer safety. RISS supports efforts against organized and violent crime, gang activity, drug activity, terrorism, human trafficking, identity theft, and other regional priorities. RISS supports thousands of local, state, federal, and tribal criminal justice agencies in their efforts to successfully resolve criminal investigations and ensure officer safety.

The Rocky Mountain Information Network (RMIN) is one of six projects that make up the national Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Program. Each project links agencies from neighboring states into a regional network that connects law enforcement agencies using a secure, web-based, cost-effective dedicated network called RISSNET. RMIN and the other five RISS projects provide a regional focus within this national network giving member agencies secure, reliable, state-of-the-art communications and intelligence sharing capabilities tailored to meet federal, state, local, and tribal needs.
