Project Grant

Overview

Grant Description
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, along with the other five RISS projects, provides 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. The RMIN Executive Policy Board serves as the law enforcement grantee and board of directors for RMIN, Inc., providing governance and operational oversight authority over this regional RISS center.

The board meets semi-annually, once in Phoenix, AZ (where the RMIN center is located) and once at an alternate location within the region. RMIN currently has 43 full-time employees serving more than 1,000 member agencies and 19,000 law enforcement officers in eight Rocky Mountain states (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming) and parts of Canada.

The RISS program facilitates multi-agency information sharing between law enforcement and criminal justice agencies to combat multi-jurisdictional criminal activities and conspiracies. RISS operates under 28 CFR Part 23 guidelines. RISS provides services to federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement member agencies in fulfilling their public safety missions combating crime.

Specific RMIN services include: RISSAFE (officer safety/deconfliction), intelligence research, case analysis, computer/digital forensic analysis, audio/video forensic analysis, technical equipment loans, investigative/confidential funding, and training support. RMIN also publishes a monthly bulletin and periodic special reports on topics of special law enforcement interest.

During 2020, RMIN provided assistance in 193 analytical cases; 3,664 intelligence research cases; 31,887 RISSAFE events for officer safety/deconfliction purposes; as well as thousands of dollars in co-sponsored training and investigative/confidential funding (ICF) support to law enforcement criminal investigations. RMIN law enforcement coordinators completed 270 agency site visits during 2020.
