Who should attend? The lead enforcement officer assigned to work gang-related activity (or corrections agent) and the person assigned to input and retrieve gang-related intelligence data for the agency. Law enforcement sensitive information will be disseminated - ID’s and credentials will be checked at the meeting prior to entry.
What is the purpose of the meeting? We now have the means by which law enforcement and corrections officials in Wyoming can share gang-related intelligence data. However, in order to do so, agencies involved need to know the capabilities of the RISS-Gang system and the requirements and the process involved to share and retrieve data. A brief overview/review of what’s required and how best to use the system will be provided for those that have not had the training - or as a review for those that have had the training and just need a refresher.
We also need to merge the efforts of the various groups working on gang issues in the state (youth gangs, outlaw motorcycle gangs, gangs in the detention and corrections settings) and to plan for the future. Those in attendance will help to plan and set the agenda for future meetings.
We will provide a breakout session for the OMG's and the Street/Prison Gangs groups so they can discuss local and specific issues – so be sure to bring specific intelligence information from your area to share in the break-out session. Bringing your information on jump/flash drives will probably be the best method for sharing. LCD projectors will be set up for each breakout group.
How do we register to attend? You will register to attend the training/meeting on http://janda1.com by filling out and submitting a REGISTRATION FORM for each person registering to attend.
THE MEETING/TRAINING HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO POST FOR 4 CREDIT HOURS.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR THE MEETING IS TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 2013.

For those of you who may not be familiar with this program, here is some additional information about the RISS National Gang Program that we will be encouraging all agencies in Wyoming to start using:
What is the RISS National Gang Program?
The RISS National Gang Program is a suite of applications, known collectively as RISSGang™, that provides a comprehensive investigative tool to aid in investigations that combat gang-related crimes. The suite of applications includes the RISS National Gang Intelligence Database, the RISSGang Website, and the RISSGang Bulletin Board.
The RISS National Gang Intelligence Database provides law enforcement agencies with easy access to gang information – including suspects, organizations, weapons, locations, and vehicles - as well as visual imagery of gang members, gang symbols, and gang graffiti. Information contained in the RISS National Gang Intelligence Database is compliant with 28 CFR Part 23, which includes guidelines for the submission, entry, security, dissemination, and purging of information stored in criminal intelligence systems.
Information and Resources
In addition to the multitude of intelligence records contained in the RISS National Gang Intelligence Database, users can access additional tools and resources through the RISSGang Website. Gang-specific news, documents, and publications are organized into topical areas such as:
The RISSGang Program also offers the RISSGang Bulletin Board, a collaborative information sharing bulletin board where authorized users can post and share gang-related information, questions, and case information. The RISSGang Bulletin Board provides a live Chat feature for on-line, real-time communication among users.
